The Kanawha County Sheriff's Office is looking into a number of recent vehicle break-ins, including one along Mullins Lane in North Charleston.

A woman who preferred to remain anonymous said locking her car is second nature, Saturday night she didn't. Sunday morning, her laptop and charger were gone.

Kanawha County deputies said five other vehicles also were ransacked. A neighbor's security footage showed two men rummaging through vehicles on Mullins Lane.

Deputies said if your vehicle has been broken into, don't touch anything in case fingerprints were left behind.

The woman said while her laptop can be replaced, the sense of security cannot.

"We were asleep inside and there's people out here stealing from us and we don't even know,” she said. β€œIt's scary. I don't think I'll feel as safe here anymore."

Kanawha County deputies are continuing to investigate. If you have any information that could help, call the Kanawha County Sheriff's Office.
