Police search for suspects in car break-ins near Lyndon

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A rash of car break-ins in east Louisville continues, but police say they're close to nabbing the suspects. They also say you’re highly more likely to fall victim when you leave valuables in your car.

Last week we told you Louisville Metro Police were asking for the public's help to identify and locate a man and a woman suspected in a number of vehicle break-ins in Louisville's east end.

Since then, police have received numerous tips.

LMPD 8th Division commander Barry Wilkerson said "We have some really good information on these crimes that are occurring and following up on those leads and hopefully we'll have something very soon."

Police believe they know who the suspects are but they haven't caught up to them yet.

The suspects are accused of breaking into vehicles and stealing credit cards, and using the stolen credit cards at various businesses in Louisville and Indiana.

They've been targeting locations like the Lyndon baseball fields and the Northeast YMCA. Since last week, there have been even more break-ins in the same areas.

"This has been quite a bit in a small amount of time frame," Northeast YMCA director Kenny Hoerter said.

The Northeast YMCA experienced two break-ins last week and another two Monday night.

“We're trying to inform our membership base as best as we can.” Hoerter said, “The message is to keep their belongings out of sight. A lot of individuals are leaving their purses or bags in the front seats and it's visible to the thieves."

He tells us they're doing everything possible to be a part of the solution.

"We have all our property secured through our security cameras system so we're able to cooperate with the law with any type of footage they ask for," Hoerter explained.

Wilkerson says they're trying to catch up to the two before they have the chance to commit any more crimes.

"We're concerned, obviously, with what's going on.” Wilkerson added, “So that's why we're working very diligently in trying to get these individuals caught."

Wilkerson thinks they'll have the two identified soon, but if you have more helpful information you're encouraged to call 574-LMPD.
