The Brentwood Police Department reported stolen credit cards and a string of vehicle burglaries in its weekly crime analysis.

Police have listed two unidentified people wearing black jackets and face coverings as the suspects in the May 13 burglaries.
BPD Public Information Officer Cpt. Richard Hickey said in an email that vehicle burglaries have occurred all over the city and are normal occur randomly which makes preventing such crimes a difficult task for police, but a relatively easy one for citizens to help prevent.
"The best thing citizens can do is to not leave valuables in their vehicles. Most of the time, the bad guys will look in the vehicle and if they see nothing, will move on," Hickey said.
