People in a metro neighborhood are on high alert; many are reporting break-ins.
Michelle Wing and her family have lived in the Aksarben/Elmwood Park neighborhood for 13 years. The Wings recently became burglary victims. "We had an intruder in the house on the 18th of August," said Wing. "He came in, my son woke up with him in his bedroom. He took his school issued laptop and ran out the door."
Burglars aren't just hitting homes but cars, too. Someone went underneath Adam Kuenning's truck, drilled a hole and stole all the gas.
Others are reporting that burglars have broken into their cars and have used their garage door openers to get inside while they were sleeping.
Police assure people that they are investigating.
