Car Theft Spree Hits Chesterfield Holiday Weekend

Police report a dozen at just one complex, in one night.

Police reported a car theft and multiple car break-ins at two apartment complexes in Chesterfield over the latest July Fourth weekend, for a total of 15 in one night.

The majority were reported taking place on a Saturday night July 7, at apartments along Schoettler Valley Road, just off Chesterfield Parkway at Highway 40/64.

Twelve crimes were reported at this one complex alone, including a stolen car. Victims' cars were parked outside.

The other targeted complex was near the intersection of Schoettler Road and Clayton Road, with three car break-ins reported. Looks like there was less loot available there, from the report.
