SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — Cops say 20-year old Israel Correa strikes at night, ripping off cars locked and unlocked.
“For some strange reason people think if their car is in their driveway it has a force field around it, well Mr. Correa takes advantage of people who think that way and they don’t lock their doors in their driveway,” said Springfield Police Sergeant John Delaney.
Police say the warm weather seems to bring on these types of crimes. They say early one Spring morning Correa and a friend hit a parking lot on Mill Street.
“Two cars got smashed windows, the other was wide open. They rifled through the cars took things like GPS’s and ripped out stereo’s,” explained Delaney.
A neighbor spotted them and called cops. They were caught in the act and arrested, but Isreal Correa made bail and hasn’t been seen since, skipping his court date.
