Residents who live in a Papillion neighborhood woke up to an unpleasant surprise-thieves hitting cars that were unlocked.

A handful of victims live near the area 72nd and Cedardale, including Patricia Harrold who lost some valuable electronics.

Harrold found out when her neighbor alerted her, “He said the back of your truck is open, did you leave that open all night? And I just had this sinking feeling,” said Harrold.

When Harrold walked to her vehicle she noticed the electronics she had inside were stolen.

“So this wasn't like something that was kids just running through grabbing some loose change but this was something that as pretty serious,” said Harrold.

Two large speakers, two portable stands, a sound mixer, microphones and cables were stolen according to Harrold who said she just bought for her various non-profits.

Harrold said she normally locks up her vehicle but forgot to last night, “Don't take for granted that you live in a fantastic neighborhood because you can't control who comes into your neighborhood.”

While the thieves are still out there Harrold sends this message to whomever did this, “Those who steal for the sake of making profit, they are the lowest of the low.”

Harrold also will be alerting pawn shops in the area in case they do find her items.

If you have any information on this you are urged to call Papillion police, that number is 402-597-2035.
