Blotter: Police investigate 11 car burglaries in south Denton neighborhood

Police are looking for potential suspect in connection with 11 car burglaries in a south Denton neighborhood that occurred early Wednesday morning.

Most of the cars in The Meadows at Hickory Creek were left unlocked, police spokesman Bryan Cose said. Credit and debit cards were among the stolen items, he said.

He said police don't have enough evidence to determine whether the incident is connected to the recent rash of car burglaries in Argyle, where at least eight unlocked cars have been burglarized since Friday.
