BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - People in one gated community in the northwest are shaken up after a burglar has reportedly broken into several cars and stolen gate clickers.
Two neighbors that live in this gated community off of Brimhall Road say that just this week a burglar has broken into their cars and taken their universal gate clickers. This gives the thief easy access to come back.
"The very first thing he took were the clickers to our garage and to our neighborhood," said one neighbor who lives off Brimhall Road.
All of the neighbors 23ABC spoke with chose to stay anonymous.
Security footage obtained shows the intruder breaking into a woman's car and taking the clickers.
"Doors were left open, he kind of just took what he needed without damaging the glass," said one neighbor.
Another neighbor says the intruder took her son's wallet out of the car and went on a thousand dollar shopping spree at local convenience stores.
Bakersfield Police Sergeant Joe Grubbs says that people need to make the call and report something suspicious so they are able to make an arrest.
"It bothers me that he now has access to come in and out of our neighborhood," said one neighbor.
The neighborhood is owned by Pacific Management, we tried to reach out to them but have not heard back.
