Henderson Neighborhood Hit by String of Break-ins

A Henderson man says his neighborhood had a string of car break-ins overnight.
Now he is trying to figure out how he can get his stolen things back.

Lamar McVicker went out to his truck Tuesday morning to find his his shotgun and wallet were stolen.

"I found my hunting stuff thrown out in the yard,” said Lamar McVicker.

But McVicker wasn't the only one missing something from Spring Garden Road.

"The officer says the whole neighborhood was ransacked and a vehicle was stolen, which was found on South Adams Street,” said McVicker.

His neighbors on both sides also woke up to find their vehicles were broken into and missing personal things.

"Everybody either had something stolen or just their vehicle ransacked,” said McVicker.

Mcvicker says he's lived here for three years and has never had to worry about break-ins or locking his doors.

"I've never had to lock my truck doors until here lately, and just last night I didn't,” said McVicker. 

Just like that, McVicker's turkey hunting season is cut short.

"(It's the) last week of turkey season and I don't have a shotgun.” said McVicker.

We reached out to Henderson Police and they say they have responded to this area for car break-ins, but they weren't able to give us anymore information today.

"People shouldn't have to worry about their vehicles getting broken into at night or anytime. It's just not right,” said McVicker.

So now McVicker and his neighbors will be sure to lock their vehicles no matter what.

Officer Jennifer Richmond says Henderson Police were called to the neighborhood today but could not provide anymore details.
