String of Car Burglaries at Northside Apartment Complex

CORPUS CHRISTI - Residents of the Costa Tarragona Apartments on the 2200-block of North Padre Island Drive awoke to an unpleasant surprise.

"I came out at about four in the morning ready to go to work, and I opened my driver door and I noticed the glass was everywhere," said one resident as he pointed to the shards of glass left in his car window.

He was one of at least four targets of a nasty string of burglaries.

"It looks like they tried to pry the window open, but they couldn't do it, so they just ended up busting it out," said another woman whose husband's truck was burglarized.

She said $200 dollars worth of tools were missing.

The culprit appears to have also made off with cash, fishing rods, speakers and sporting equipment.

In their place--a big headache for the owners of these cars.

"That kinda put me out of work and I lose money that way, and then having to dish out for my window."

Residents estimate that the damage alone adds up to several hundred dollars.

"It just sucks," one resident said. "I have three kids, and...you're trying to make things work and then now you have more bills and things you gotta pay back."

Police say they don't have any suspects but that they're still looking into the case.
