LAMPASAS, Texas (KWTX) A Central Texas police department is warning its residents to make sure their cars are locked after a “rash” of burglaries.

Lampasas Assistant Chief of Police Jody Cummings said the department got eight calls alone on Tuesday.

He said while it is not uncommon to see a handful ever-so-often, he described Tuesday’s activity as a rash of burglaries.

He also said it happens a few times a year.

According to department’s call for service log, the vehicles were located at home on Ridge Street, Teton Avenue and Spring Street.

Cummings said none of the vehicles had damage, which tells them the care were unlocked.

He had a simple message to the residents of Lampasas.

“Don’t leave stuff in your vehicles, don’t be a target,” he said.
