Williamsburg police are looking for suspects after two cars were stolen from the parking lot of an apartment complex.

The cars were taken on consecutive nights from the Parkway Apartments at 416 Merrimac Trail, said Maj. Greg Riley, Williamsburg police spokesman.

The first car, a 2005 Nissan Sentra, was stolen sometime between 11 p.m. Monday and 9 a.m. Tuesday, Riley said. The car was later recovered in Newport News after it was involved in a crash.

The second car, a 2019 Volkswagen Jetta, was stolen between 11 p.m. Tuesday and 4 a.m. Wednesday, Riley said.

The owner did not lock the doors when she parked the car, Riley said.

He said it’s unusual for cars to be stolen on consecutive nights in Williamsburg, much less from the same parking lot.

Riley said the best method to thwart thieves is relatively simple: Always lock a vehicle when parking and never leave keys inside it.

“Locking your doors is the No. 1 priority,” he said.

Police are increasing patrols around the Parkway Apartments in response to the thefts, Riley said.

Anyone with information about the thefts is encouraged to call Crime Stoppers at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP or the Williamsburg Police Department at 757-220-2331.

Editor’s note: One of the cars involved belongs to a WYDaily staff member.
