    According to Round Rock Police, more than fifty cars were burglarized Wednesday morning within a one mile radius.

    The burglar(s) smashed car windows and stole items in plain view.

    Police say between midnight and 3:30 a.m., cars parked at Belmont Apartments, Applecreek Apartments, and Red Hill Villas fell victim.

    However, RRPD hasn't said if the break-ins can be attributed to one person, or a group of people.

    One victim, Matt Sansabrino, says although nothing was taken from his car, it'll cost about $270 to replace the window.

    "Especially now at this time of year it's unfortunate that this happens," says Sansabrino.

    Sansabrino's neighbors tell CBS Austin, they discovered the break-ins at around 4 a.m. Wednesday.

    Some neighbors had more than one window smashed and items stolen, but others noticed that the burglar tried to break in, but was unsuccessful.

    "I'm going to go out on a limb and say that's what they were looking for -- jewelry, wallets something of value," says Sansabrino.

    Round Rock Police are now asking anyone with surveillance video near the apartments to call 512-218-5500.

    Police are also encouraging every victim to file a police report.
