MISSION--Mission police need the public's help finding a man who burglarized several cars on the 1000 block of W. Solar Drive.
     Joe Ortiz was one victim. He said he woke up and noticed something wasn't right.
     "I always look and take a glance outside the house to see what's going on and I saw the door open from my truck," Ortiz said.
     Several items were stolen from Ortiz's truck. Three other vehicles on his street were also hit.
     One neighbor caught the crime on surveillance cameras. He said there were two cars. One man got out and allegedly broke into the vehicles.
     "It makes me feel angry and frustrated because you work so hard for what you have. it's just somebody coming and trying to snatch the things that you've taken care of...and it's not right and it's not fair," Ortiz said.
     Ortiz said Mission police told him they will be upping patrols in the area. Ortiz now wants his neighbors to pay attention to anyone suspicious.
     "Just to be aware of any cars that come in that we don't recognize," Ortiz said.
     Mission police said to avoid a break-in from happening to you, lock your doors and never leave anything valuable in your vehicle.
     If you know anything, call Mission Crime Stoppers at 581-TIPS.
