Deputy Lt. John Davis said that since April 10, his department has received five complaints of vehicle burglaries in that residential area.
The break-ins have been reported at all hours, both during daylight and after dark.
Davis said the incidents appear to have been crimes of opportunity. That means someone, most likely on foot, has been checking inside parked vehicles and then taking anything of value if the vehicle is unlocked.
Davis said the Coastal Bend Crime Stoppers organization will pay a reward of up to $1,000 for information that leads to an arrest in the case.
But locking all parked vehicles and keeping valuable items out of sight are the best ways to prevent the burglaries.
Anyone who might have information on the culprit should contact Coastal Bend Crime Stoppers at 362-0206 or by calling, toll-free, to (877) 362-0206.

Witnesses always remain anonymous.
