Police are urging residents to lock their car doors, following a rash of car burglaries in Quincy Wednesday night.

Patrol officer Tom Miller with the Quincy Police Department said more than 20 cars were broken into Wednesday night.

He said majority were on the southeast part of town, southeast of 18th and Broadway, all the way to 36th street.

He said they know of four individuals who admitted to stealing things like change, phone chargers and sunglasses.

Miller said they tend to see more crimes like this when kids are out of school.

"Remember back before the key fobs came out, everybody had to manually lock your doors," Miller said. "We probably need to go back to that time frame now. Everybody is supposed to be in their house, so send one of the kids out or something to make sure all the car doors are locked."

Police said they are still investigating the burglaries and don't have details on the suspects.
