State College police have seen a rash of car break-ins in the past few days, and are warning residents to take precautions.

Over the weekend, five cars were broken into and valuables were removed. Shortly before 7:00 p.m., police responded to call where a checkbook had been removed from an unlocked car on Rolling Ridge Drive. Later that same night, an iPod was stolen from an unlocked car on Osmond Street.

The streak of break-ins continued though Sunday. Police responded to reports that two cars on Blue Course Drive had been broken into. A GPS system, an iPod and prescription medication were removed from the unlocked vehicles. In the most expensive incident, two cameras worth about $1,000 were stolen from a car on Osmond Street.

Police are not sure if the incidents are related, but can not rule out the possibility. Police advise every State College resident to lock their cars doors and remove all valuables from their vehicles. If you have to leave something in your car, make sure it's out of sight.
