Two car owners at Park-N-Ride report break-ins, nothing stolen

COVINGTON — Two commuters returned to the Park-N-Ride at U.S. Highway 278 and Turner Lake Road noticing their vehicles ransacked.

However, no items appeared to be stolen, according to reports filed by Covington Police Officer Kara Hipps.

The officer responded to two different entering auto calls on Tuesday evening.

The first victim, owner of a 2014 Nissan Altima, had the driver’s side window broken out as well as the window frame bent and scratched.

However, the victim’s checkbook and GPS suction cupped to the windshield were left untouched.

About three hours later, a second victim, owner of a 2000 Ford Ranger, called to report its driver’s side window broken into. While tools inside the vehicle appeared to be disheveled, the victim didn’t find any tools to be missing.

The estimated value for each broken window is $250. No arrests have been made as of Wednesday, according to CPD Public Information Officer Capt. Ken Malcom.
