Yesterday morning the head of the neighborhood association at Wellington Glen got a phone call from a neighbor.
Someone rummaged through her car and stole things, and when Gene went to leave his home, he had an unpleasant surprise.
"I went out about a quarter to nine to go to mass at nine o'clock and the garage door was open to my garage and my car was gone and goodness gracious, I knew I had left the garage door closed, I always do."
Gene had a 2011 silver Camry.
He called sheriff's deputies immediately to investigate.

Two cars stolen, and items taken from two other cars all in one night.
People who've lived here for years say it's definitely unusual for the quiet community.
"I mean we're just a block off of Montgomery Road and you know there's a lot of traffic going by, you don't hear a thing back here."
Gene put out a note letting neighbors know what happened and reminding them to be vigilant.
"It's a great neighborhood and we've never had a problem, but I guess it could happen to anyone."
"We're going to lock the garages and of course everybody will be aware of things going on in the neighborhood."
