    Buckner spoke with FOX13 about the warning signs parents can look for.

    “When you’re pulling inside of a daycare center parking lot, look around,” he said. “If there's anyone there who doesn’t look familiar who may be up to no good, if you see someone like that, contact law enforcement.”

    Buckner said every car burglarized was unlocked.

    “You know it's terrible because daycare centers are considered an innocent place to be,” Buckner said.

    Buckner said the suspects took credit cards from the victims. They spent around $2,500 on electronics and other various items at Walmart and Gamestop.
