The Daviess County Sheriff's Office is warning residents in the Owensboro area of recent vehicle break-ins.

Over the last few days, the sheriff's office says it's been investigating a string of vehicle break-ins on Jack Hinton Road, Pleasant Valley Road, Millers Mill Road, New Bolt Road, and most recently, Boothfield Road and Bon Harbor Cove.

DCSO says the thieves have even walked down long driveways to get to unattended vehicles.

While rural areas seem to be the main target in these break-ins, the sheriff's office says subdivisions are commonly targeted as well.

"Be vigilant and lock your vehicle any time they are unattended," the sheriff's office warned. "Also, do not leave anything of value in your vehicle, including firearms."

Anyone who sees something suspicious is encouraged to call the Daviess County Sheriff’s Office at 270-685-8444 or Crime Stoppers at 270-685-8484.

Scattered rainfall continues to affect portions of the Tri-State and it seems as though it will continue to do so through the remainder of the evening and overnight. After reaching an afternoon high near 80° earlier on, expect temperatures to gradually fall toward 70° by dinnertime before dwindling into the mid 60s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will dive all the way back down into the upper 50s by the predawn hours Wednesday; we'll fall to 58° in Evansville. The cold front and associated low responsible for all of our rain chances both today and tonight is expected to stall stall Wednesday, prolonging our isolated rain chances tomorrow, especcially for those of us north and east of Evasnville.
