Thieves targeted cars in portions of the city's DeVeaux section and in the parking lots at the Packard Court housing complex during an overnight rash of car break-ins, police said Sunday.

At least three vehicles were entered in a secluded area of the Packard Court complex, police said. Resident Terrance Jones said that a sun roof and two doors were broken on his vehicle and that a compact disc player and nearly 150 CDs were stolen. He estimated his loss at $2,800, along with undetermined damage to the car.

Also reporting break-ins at Packard Court were resident Evelyn Riddick, who lost a portable radio and a CD player valued at $700, and McKoon Avenue resident Tim Jackson, who lost more than $500 worth of property, including a stereo and an amplifier.

In the DeVeaux area, McKoon Avenue residents Erin Chase and Leslie Hendrix told police that windows were smashed on their cars, the second time in the past three months that Hendrix's vehicle had been targeted.

Nearby, Pierce Avenue resident Redell Jones reported that his car was broken into while parked in the 2400 block of Ninth Street. Speakers and an amplifier were stolen, police said.

Woodlawn Avenue resident Amy Poullos reported that her car was entered while parked in a lot off 16th Street. She was unsure if anything was stolen.
