If you plan to workout in Brownsville beware, burglars are targeting people's cars while they workout inside the gym.
Brownsville police say between January 2008 and now, thieves have hit 50 cars in the Gold's Gym's parking lot. Last Monday, burglars hit 4 cars all on the same day taking car stereos, I-pods, wallets, clothes, CD's and many other items. Officers caught some of the burglars and returned some of the stolen items back to their rightful owners.
Police are cracking down and say they will be patrolling the area more often. Director of Communications for Gold's Gym, Dave Reiseman, says they are taking these break-ins very seriously. He says, they've stepped up surveillance in the parking lot and are working with police to promote a take, lock, and hide program.
