Police are investigating a recent rash of burglaries in the Sharpstown area.
"We did not have these locked. Lesson learned to all the viewers lock all your locks," said Bill St. Cyr, who has lived in Sharpstown for more than 20 years.
This is the first time his family has fallen victim to a home burglary.
St. Cyr said the thieves were so brazen they walked right into their home not worried that someone was inside.
"It was just this bottom lock that was locked. You can see damage to the door jam where you can see they took some kind of tool. Her purse was right here so they picked it up. Came in right here and got my wallet," said St. Cyr.
The thieves were gone by the time the family noticed things were missing, so the family does not have a description.
Within the last three days and within two miles of each other, two homes including St. Cyr's and one business have been burglarized, and one person has been robbed near their home.
Police are not saying they're connected at this time.
However, a spokesperson with City Councilman Mike Laster's office said they are aware of the rash of burglaries in the area.
They say they're working closely with HPD, but in the meantime they want residents in the area to be vigilant.
"We got great people who live here in Sharpstown and the neighbors really look out for each other. I'm sure this like anywhere else anywhere you live in Houston you could be subjected to crime," said St. Cyr.
Councilman Laster's office says HPD has a location and possible suspects that they are monitoring.
They want residents to not approach suspects, and instead call 911.
The district office recommends that residents keep all doors, windows, and garages locked and secured and to install and use deadbolts on your doors if you have not already done so.
