LEAWOOD, KS (KCTV) -

Police in Leawood have issued a warning about residents leaving their vehicles unattended and unlocked.

The crooks are taking advantage of vehicle owners who aren't locking their doors or closing their garages.

The police department has received more than two dozen reports of car burglaries in the past month as well as auto thefts. The department has found nearly 100 residents with open garage doors in recent days.

"These are all crimes of opportunity. They are not forcing their way into anything with the exception of one car," said Leawood Sgt. Brad Robbins. "It's simply unlocked car doors or in the case of two auto thefts they just walked into an open garage and found a car with keys in it and took off."
