Overnight Car Burglaries at Hotels

3-22-06 - Ardmore Police are investigating how fifteen cars were burglarized in one night on Holiday Drive. The parking lots are lit at night, but there is no surveillance equipment surveying the area and some thieves took advantage of that Wednesday morning.

Smashing car windows and coming away with whatever people left in their vehicles, the Holiday Inn, Hampton Inn, and Comfort Inn on Holiday were targeted with fifteen cars broken into. Officials say they are making steps to install exterior cameras to help prevent another outbreak of burglaries.

The hotels allowed those affected by the burglaries to stay longer in order to have time to get police reports filed and to get their vehicles fixed.

Authorities a are asking anyone with information on the burglaries to call the Ardmore Police at (580) 504-4LAW.
