Hikers Warned To Hide Valuables After String Of Car Break-Ins On South Coast

Warnings have gone out for hikers to keep any valuables in their cars out of view, or better yet, don't leave anything valuable in their vehicles at all.

Three vehicles in the Santa Barbara area were burglarized on the Jesusita trail above San Roque Road, and also at the bird refuge at Andree Clark Bird Refuge.

Police say thieves are looking for wallets, purses, backpacks, cell phones, or other electronics.

They also say that concerned people shouldn't hesitate to call if they see someone suspicious who may be staking out some vehicles.
