LENEXA, KS (KCTV) -

UPS workers in Lenexa were the target of a string of overnight car break-ins.

Lenexa police say at least 30 cars were broken into and several items were stolen at the UPS Customer Center, located 14650 Santa Fe Trail Drive, between 11:30 p.m. Thursday and 2:30 a.m. Friday.

Officers say at least one person either broke the car windows to get in or found another way in. They say nothing of significant value was taken from the vehicles, only miscellaneous items that were laying inside the cars.

Police do not have a description of the suspect(s) and are looking to see if any surveillance video is available. 

"The fact that we're dealing with close to 30 vehicles, that is a little unusual, but often times that can be a target because a perpetrator has many vehicles to choose from," said Danny Chavez with the Lenexa Police Department.

UPS said they are working with local law enforcement and that they don't comment on security practices. 

Police also went to Woodspring Suites, which is nearby, after five cars were broken into there.

"It seems like there would be some relation given the proximity to each other within the same night, the same method of smashing out the window," said Chavez.

Anyone with information about the break-ins is asked to call the TIPS Hotline (816) 474-TIPS.
