Texas Medical Center sees increase in burglaries in parking lot

The nearly 75,000 cars that utilize Houston-based Texas Medical Center's 22 parking garages each day have become prime targets for those looking to steal, according to Click2Houston.com.

The medical center reported six break-ins during the month of November.

"We have exterior garages," said Cheyne Day, head of security for Texas Medical Center. "There is only so much we can do, but we always increase that year over year."

Still, the number of break-ins has employees worried. One employee, Darren Gayden, said his vehicle has been robbed three times in the past three years. "It makes me very upset that I can't feel safe parking here at work," he said. "All three times they broke my door lock and stole my stereo."
