ARDMORE, OK-- Experts say July is the busiest month for car burglaries and after a string of auto burglaries in one Ardmore neighborhood; police want you to remember a few helpful tips

Police said 18-year old Corey Green and a 17 year-old were arrested Tuesday after a string of burglaries happened in the Shenandoah neighborhood in Ardmore.

"Lock your doors, don't ever forget," said Ardmore Resident Gary Spears.

It's advice Spears said he wishes he would've remembered the night his car was burglarized.


"They took my GPS, they took my wallet and kind of scattered it in the field. They were at least kind enough and left my I'd's in the back of the car, and my debit card. I guess they were after cash and whatever electronics they could grab out of the inside," said Spears.

Investigators arrested the two teens after they got a call around 4 a.m. Tuesday.
    
"We located two subjects, went to talk to them and when they took off running it was pretty obvious they were involved," said Sgt. Ryan Hunnicutt, Ardmore Police Department.


Police want people to remember to always get their door locked and to not leave any valuables in their car like their cell phone or a wallet.

"One of the things to remember is don't leave valuables in the car, especially where people can see them and certainly lock your vehicles, your neighborhood may be safe and for the most part it is, but it doesn't take very long for someone to come down a street to check all the doors," said Sgt. Hunnicutt.

Residents said it's a quiet neighborhood and the thought of someone breaking into cars is scary.

"We have a really great neighborhood and we really watch out for each other...but I always lock my doors," said Resident Terri French.

Something spears said he'll never forget.
