(KMOV) -- Thieves are breaking into cars and homes in one south St. Louis County neighborhood near Bella Villa between Lemay Ferry and South Broadway. The rise in crime has one homeowner so frustrated that he's decided to move out.
There have been about 10 break-ins over a 10-day period. Although police are making progress in their investigation regarding the burglaries, they say the eyes and ears of residents are an important part of both solving and preventing crime.
News 4's Russell Kinsaul shows why the break-ins have residents ready to leave.
