FORT MYERS, Fla. - Police went car door to car door to see what drivers are leaving behind that could tempt criminals.
Only WINK cameras were there while detectives peered into random vehicle windows Tuesday in an attempt to curve a staggering statistic.
In the month of July there were 32 vehicle burglaries within Fort Myers, 16 of which were due to drivers leaving their doors unlocked.
So far in August, there have been 13 such burglaries... 10 due to unlocked doors.
During the ride-a-long investigators found items left in plain view such as cash, GPS systems, purses, mp3 players, a guitar, DVD's, a knife and a gun.
"Some people feel like their in an area that's secure that they don't have to lock their vehicles, some people just forget because they're in a hurry," said detective Rebecca Milhoan.
