Smash and grab car burglars take only paperwork from ‘numerous’ vehicles, cops say

Electronic devices, designer sunglasses and other valuables were left behind, but one or more car burglars made off with a bunch of owners’ manuals after shattering the passenger side windows of “numerous” vehicles during a car burglary spree in Wilton Manors, police said.

It happened between 3 and 5 a.m. on Monday in the parking lot at a residential condominium complex at 2124 N.E. Fifth Ave., investigators said.

The burglar or burglars broke into the vehicles’ glove compartments, taking the owners’ manuals and registration information, according to some victims.

Resident Gary Sikorski told WSVN-Ch.7 he was puzzled why the burglars didn’t take his GPS and a pair of nice sunglasses.
