Omaha's city parks tend to be hot spots for many wanting to get out to enjoy the weather, but they are also hot spots for thieves.
"Little windy, but its a great day to get out, get some exercise and be around people," explained Jim Boston as he got out of his vehicle at Seymour Smith Park at 68th and Harrison on Sunday. He was headed to the diamond to umpire some baseball.
"Usually, take a minimum of things with me to the park. Keep my driver's license with me or any cash. And just not leave it in plain sight in the car," he said.
Like Boston, Jamie Sparbel also take the precautions to make sure their vehicle is safe while she's off playing Frisbee golf, especially since she knows the parking lot is tucked back out of plain sight. "It's hidden in with all these trees and its usually, I don't think its even very visible from where we are at."
The hidden pocket of parked vehicles makes easy prey for thieves.
"I think they just tried to take a crow bar and there's a big old gap right underneath my door handle." Dylan Rooney is one of three victims who had their vehicles broken into while parked at the parking lot recently.
He was out playing Frisbee golf and came back to his vehicle that had been ransacked, "Just everything I own, basically, was taken out of it."
Now he's left without hundreds of dollars and with a door that no longer works.
Word is spreading in the parking lot where the break-ins happened, but maybe not as fast as Ben Bostwick would like.
Channel 6 found his vehicle in the lot with the door unlocked, window open and valuables in plain sight. "I know people were breaking in to cars out here and my window was left down by someone riding in my car. So I was just a little bit upset," said Bostwick.
For his buddy who left the door unlocked and window down, its all thumbs up for now, since luckily, nothing was stolen.
Another victim had a wallet and cell phone stolen recently. According to the victim, whoever stole the phone even posted a status update on the phone users Facebook page.
Both victims did get something back, saving them a trip to the DMV.
The Sarpy County Sheriff found one driver's license in a dumpster near 156th and Harrison.
Rooney's license was mailed back to him by a good Samaritan.
