The Albemarle County Police Department is investigating a rash of car break ins.

Officials say at least 30 unlocked cars were entered overnight in the Fontana, Pavilions at Pantops and Forest Lakes North neighborhoods.

Vehicles in the Key West, Franklin, Mill Creek, Foxcroft and Lake Reynovia neighborhoods were reportedly broken into on Sunday and Monday nights.

All of the cars targeted were unlocked.
