Authorities are investigating a string of burglaries of unlocked vehicles overnight Monday.

The “crimes of opportunity” happened on Cross, Teche and David Roads between Monday evening and Tuesday morning, said Traci Landry, a spokeswoman with the St. Mary Parish Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies found no signs of forced entry on any of the vehicles, Landry said.

Residents are encouraged to report suspicious activity that may indicate this type of criminal behavior, including reports of people looking into vehicles, pulling on door handles or parking in an unusual location for a prolonged period of time, Landry said.
