NORFOLK, Va. - Police are investigating several car break-ins that took place early Monday.

Neighbors in the area of Thole Street and Virginian Drive woke up Monday morning to shattered car windows on multiple streets.

"You think you live in a pretty safe neighborhood middle-class neighborhood that's close to the interstate, close to the schools and to have people just walking through our neighborhood to just vandalize it's frustrating definitely," said David Owens who's window was broken.

It's the third time Owens' has been broken into.

One house in the area of Overbrook Avenue also had two cars broken into. Charmanda Grant says $4 was taken from one of the cars; her purse and iPad left alone in the backseat. This is the first time a break-in like this has happened to her.

"What if it was just me here by myself or what if that person just went that extra step and got into the house," she said.

It's unclear if break-ins in the two neighborhoods are related.
