Soulard residents tell News 4 they are concerned with recent car break-ins, saying they see shattered glass on a regular occasion.

A recent example is what happened to Jonathan Olson, who said it has happened to him twice.

“It kind of goes up and down, but lately it’s been particularly bad,” said Olson.

In recent days, people on Nextdoor have been complaining about burglaries, it’s been supposedly going on for weeks.

Surveillance video provided to News 4 by a victim shows a man with a baseball bat touching car doors, it appears is he trying to see if any are open. The footage was shot near Lafayette and I-44.

The footage doesn’t catch the crime in the act, but the victim says $1,000 worth chef knives were stolen.

St. Louis police say car break-ins are down 38 percent in Soulard.
