Of the seven incidents, one was reported on Holli Lane, two on Bunker Drive, and four on Century Drive. All are in the Fort Town Estates subdivision off of Mineral Lane near Cloud Springs Road.
Two of the incident locations reported multiple vehicles being entered.
Three GPS units, iPod, iPhone car-charger, and $65 in cash were among the items reported stolen, in addition to one victim who told police eight packs of cigarettes were taken from her vehicle.
All the victims said their vehicles were unlocked at the time of the thefts, reports show.
