A rash of car break-ins in Council Member Jesse Moreno’s District 2 has residents worrying about the safety of their property, according to a recent report by NBC 5 DFW.

According to the City of Dallas crime analytics dashboard, as of May 20, 4,391 car burglaries had been logged citywide this year. District 2, which is situated in and around Downtown Dallas, had the second-highest number of car burglaries so far at 663.

“More than 30 vehicles were broken into early Tuesday morning over a three-block area along Cedarplaza Lane near Lemmon Avenue and Inwood Road.

“The vehicles affected include those parked in the Windsor West Lemmon Apartment’s gated parking garage.

“’I started walking my dog around the neighborhood,’ Ryan Roberts said. Roberts and his fiancé were both affected by the break-ins.

“’I saw a couple of the windows on this street that were punched in … I came down, I saw people in the parking garage looking at their cars. I saw their windows were punched in, and I looked at my car.’

“Inside the garage, neighbors counted as many as 20 vehicles vandalized. Outside along Wheeler, Holland, Bowser and Cedarplaza streets, at least 15 vehicles were broken into.

“Roberts said it cost about $400 to replace his passenger window. His fiancé’s vehicle was covered with insurance.”
