DES PERES, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

Des Peres Police are looking for car thieves responsible for stealing two cars and breaking into two others in the same neighborhood late Monday or early Tuesday morning. 

Captain Sean Quinn said, "They were all in the same geographic area which indicates they most likely were related to the same people."

The crimes happened in a neighborhood just south of the intersection of Manchester Road and Lindemann Avenue. Residents said it's normally a quiet neighborhood. 

"I've lived here for 4 years and we've only had a few minor problems," said Jason Baker who lives nearby.

Capt. Quinn said thieves stole a Chevy Cruze and a Lexus sedan which was found later, abandoned, in Berekely. A laptop was also stolen from a car but was later found in a yard a couple of houses away.

Police are asking anyone who saw or heard something in the neighborhood that night to call them. Capt. Quinn said residents can reduce their risk of being a victim of these kinds of crimes by locking their car doors and by notifying police if they see or hear any unusual activity.
