MEMPHIS, Tenn. - People living in one Cordova neighborhood are on alert after a recent car break-in Saturday morning.

As Adrian Holloway pulled out of his driveway Monday, hubcaps were missing from his car. He admits it isn’t the best look, but said he does it in hopes of thieves turning the other way.

“I had a situation where I had my car parked on the backside of my house and I had missing things out of my car,” he said.

That was a while back, but his neighbor up the street wasn’t as lucky. 

Around 4 Saturday morning, several men were caught trying to break into one of Holloway’s neighbors’ cars in the 1100 block of Cortona Circle.

“I didn’t know it was that bad out here in Cordova like that,” Holloway said.

Since the beginning of the month, police and sheriffs deputies have responded to 28 motor vehicle theft calls, an average of more than two-a-day.
