The department issued the warning after reports of 23 car break ins came in Saturday. Investigators said all of the vehicles that were broken into were left unlocked. A gun was stolen from one of the unlocked vehicles.

Most of the burglaries happened in the area of Montana and Old Hearne, according to information released by the police department.
