Edwards car thieves take iPods

EDWARDS, Colorado – Apparently, local criminals are fans of Apple products.

Thieves have stolen iPods and other property out of a handful of cars in Edwards over the past few weeks, the Eagle County Sheriff’s Office reports. In at least half the cases, the cars had been left unlocked, sheriff’s office spokeswoman Shannon Cordingly said.

In Miller Ranch, people reported three car break-ins this past week, Cordingly said. An iPod, a wallet and a DVD player are among the stolen goods, she confirmed. Two bikes were also stolen.

Drivers have reported two other car break-ins in Homestead on Thursday and Friday, Cordingly said. Thieves took an iPhone and CDs, she said.

In the Riverwalk shopping center, people reported three car break-ins between May 26 and June 9, Cordingly said. Food, an iPod and vehicle registration papers are among the stolen goods, she said.

Officials are reminding drivers to lock their doors.

“It’s the simplest advice: lock the doors and keep valuables out of sight,” Cordingly said. “If they pull on your car handle and can’t get in right away they’re just going to go to the next one that’s easy.”
