THE VICTIMS DISPLACED DUE TO THE FLAMES. NO WORD WHAT SPARKED IT. NEARLY 40 CARS BROKER INTO OVERNIGHT AT THREE DIFFERENT APARTMENTS COMPLEXION IN BROWARD COUNTY BUT THE THIEVES WERE NOT AFTER SOME OF THOSE EXPENSIVE ITEMS INSIDE. LOCAL10 NEWS REPORTER ROGER LOHSE TELLS US WHAT THOSE GUYS REALLY WANTED. Reporter: WE ARE AT THE MEADOWBROOK APARTMENTS IN DANIA BEACH. THE CROOKS SHATTERED DOZENS OF VEHICLE WINDOWS RIGHT HERE IN THE PARKING LOT. THERE’LL MADE A MESS OF THE PLACE. BUT THAT’S NOTHING TO THE MESS THEY COULD CAUSE FOR THE VICTIMS WITH THE INFORMATION THEY STOLE. A QUIET TUESDAY MORNING IN DANIA BEACH SHATTERED BY CRIMINALS. NEARLY 40 CARS IN BROWARD’S OLDEST CITY HIT BY A NEW KIND OF CROOK. THEY DIDN’T TAKE MY GPS AND THEY DIDN’T TAKE THE C.D. PLAYERS THAT I HAD IN THERE. Reporter: THESE GUYS WERE AFTER SOMETHING MORE VALUABLE, INSURANCE PAPERS AND VEHICLE REGISTRATION, IMPORTANT PAPERWORK, DOCUMENTS THAT HOLD THE AR OWNER’S PERSONAL INFORMATION, NAME, ADDRESS, DATE OF BIRTH. BRIAN COWARD JUST BOUGHT HIS CAR A MONTH AGO. THE FRONT WINDSHIELD WAS SHATTERED BUT TONIGHT HE CONSIDERATION HIMSELF ONE OF THE LUCKY ONES. I STILL HAD THE SALES DOCUMENT SIDE I. INSIDE THE CAR SO I WAS COMING DOWN HERE JUST TO TAKE IT OUT OF THE CAR AND I NOTICE IT WAS STILL IN HERE SO THERE’S REALLY NOTHING THEY TOOK OUT OF THE CAR. Reporter: DETECTIVE SAY THERE ARE A FEW THINGS YOU CAN DO TO MAKE YOUR CAR A LITTLE LESS ATTRACTIVE TO THE BAD GUYS. YOU DON’T WANT TO LEAVE VALUABLES IN THE CAR BUT IF DO YOU TUCK THEM AWAY OUT OF SIGHT, AND INSTEAD OF KEEPING YOUR REGISTRATION AND INSURANCE INFORMATION IN THE GLOVE BOX, YOU’D BE SMART TO THEME IN YOUR PURSE OR WALLET. THESE ARE ITEMS THAT YOU’RE GOING TO NEED AND YOU’RE GOING TO NEED MOST LIKELY WHEN YOU’RE IN THE CAR BUT THAT DOES NOT MEAN THAT YOU HAVE TO LEAVE THEM IN THE CAR FOR OTHERS TO TAKE. Reporter: ANYONE ABOUT INFORMATION ABOUT THIS OVERNIGHT CRIME IS ASKED TO CALL THE BROWARD COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE OR BROWARD COUNTY CRIMESTOPPERS.
