MILLSBORO, Md. - Millsboro Police say that there were 16 break-ins over a short span in the month of October, hitting three separate neighborhoods. 
 
In video released to the Millsboro Police Department Facebook page you can see four people opening car doors, taking items and walking off. 
 
There has been a rash of break-ins and some were able to be caught on video. Millsboro police are hoping to catch these thieves, as does Meranda Smith; whose car was broken into earlier this month. 
 
"They took like coins, and change, and a perfume bottle," said Smith.
 
After Smith found out that her car was broken into she actually went out and bought a "Ring" doorbell. Once you press the button it records the person at the door and also alerts the people inside. It helps Smith feel safer in her own home
 
"I went ahead and bought the Ring doorbell because we have no video surveillance currently, and I needed it," said Smith.
 
In another video release by the Millsboro PD you can see a thief try to open a locked car door, give up and walk away.  
 
Josh White, a resident of Plantation Lake was very surprised to see the footage. He even works for a security company and couldn't believe his eyes.
 
"Even though I am who I am, and I do what I do, it's just crazy to see that people will come into a neighborhood like this and just walk in and take their stuff," said White.
 
Millsboro Police say the thieves were targeting unlocked cars as easy targets. In a separate video you can see a other person give up on a locked car and move on.
 
The lesson police are giving out? Be sure to lock your doors and double check to make sure everything is locked up.
