EDMOND , Okla. - Edmond residents say they caught an alleged auto burglar on their surveillance cameras as he walked down their street, checking for unlocked cars.

Allison Chastain says she was one of the victims of the crook, but what he took from her was far more valuable than any material item.

She says she left her car unlocked with important personal documents in her center console.

"They were able to steal my identity. They took out about six credit cards in my name and on two of them, they spent the limit. So there's about $3,400 in my name," Chastain said.

She says one little mistake put her in a world of trouble.

She has to cancel all of the cards.

From now on, she says she's keeping the doors locked tight and the personal documents out of her car.

"I did think about locking my door when I was in bed that night. Then I thought to myself, 'it will be fine because we're in a safe area.' But you know, it could always happen to anyone." Chastain said.
