Car thieves are having a field day downtown this weekend.
Police say, Friday night, 62 vehicles were broken into, half of them on a parking lot just south of Busch Stadium.
Police Captain Mike Caruso tells KMOX it’s time for parking lot owners to watch their lots even after they’ve taken a driver’s money.
And, if you’re not parking on a lot, Captain Caruso recommends leaving nothing in sight inside a car, locking the car, parking in lighted areas and never hesitating to call 9-1-1 when someone suspicious is loitering near a car.
Police are stepping up patrols. One undercover car theft unit operating Saturday night made its first arrest shortly before 5.pm.
