KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Overland Park police said dozens of vehicles were broken into Tuesday night at an apartment complex.

The string of break-ins happened near West 135th Street and Nall Avenue.

OPPD said Wednesday morning that most of the vehicles had windows broken out of them.

Earlier this week, Grandview Police investigated similar reports of 40 broken windows and car break-ins. Grandview police say they are in contact with the Overland Park Police Department to determine if the cases are connected — the current assumption is the break-ins are linked.

"There seems to be a lot of similarities in terms of targeting large apartment complexes and gaining access by breaking the windows out," Captain Ryan Sharp with the Grandview Police Department said. "I believe OPPD is still working through all their cases, so we haven't been told if they have video or not we can compare."

Grandview Police request any video evidence of the break-ins.
