Thieves are preying on shoppers while they're away from their car. A Leah Doyle said someone broke into her truck near 71st and Garnett, and now she's afraid to even park.

"Oh Lord have mercy I cried," said Doyle.

Someone broke her door lock and stole hundreds of dollars in property, along with new purses, a diaper bag and baby formula. Thieves got a hold of winter clothes and Christmas gifts for her kids too.

"You don't want to mess with a mom," said Doyle.

But they did again, on the following weekend. Doyle was inside El Chico restaurant eating when it happened. Surveillance cameras captured it.

"They were in and out of my truck in 10 seconds and gone," said Doyle.

They were long gone with Doyle's license, more gifts and her son's Social Security card by the time she returned.

"You're always going to be suspicious of the people just sitting there in their vehicle," said Doyle.

The driver of a black Nissan Altima is the person Doyle believes is responsible.
Doyle got her lock fixed, and she's getting an alarm. Perhaps more alarming was that
she believes the thief was watching her both times.

Doyle said she's also thinking about getting a gun. She said several people in that area have had their cars broken into lately.
