Channel 2 Action News crews saw cars inside and around the parking garage that had been broken into and damaged.

Nicholas Ward told a Channel 2 Action News photographer that this was the third time in ten months his vehicles had been broken into or stolen. Ward says his motorcycle was stolen from the garage in October, his car was broken into last month and now his wife’s car has been broken into.

“I’m very upset. This is the third incident,” he said. “I understand things happen, but I’d like to see some action.”


Investigators say at least two firearms were stolen from the cars that were broken into, but confirmed no firearms were taken from the patrol vehicle.

Details on possible suspects or motives have not been released.
