EUGENE, Ore. -- Police are investigating after multiple reports of a someone ransacking cars in a Eugene neighborhood.

Around 1 a.m. Monday a man called 911 to report his Chevy Tahoe was broken into in the 2800 block of Dry Creek Road. Police said they have received five or six other similar reports from the Dry Creek Road and Arrowhead Street area.

Police said the suspect is a white female in her early to mid-thirties with maroon or dark auburn, shoulder length hair. She was wearing a sage-green T-shirt with a large circular sun design on the front, purple yoga pants and carrying a backpack-type purse.

The suspect left a pink purse in one of the vehicles that may or may not have belonged to her.

Police said some stolen property was recovered.

Officers ask anyone else who has been victimized to call and make a report. To make a report or recover items that have been found, contact Officer Trevor Hart at 541-654-1242 or Trevor.T.Hart@ci.eugene.or.us.

Preventing car break-ins

Police said not leaving items visible inside the car is the best way to reduce the likelihood of your car being broken into, especially when it comes to electronics.

Officials said you should put items in your trunk before arriving at a location. If someone sees you park and put something in your trunk, they may break into the vehicle and use the trunk release to steal items.

Also, make sure windows are rolled up and doors are locked.
