A Davenport neighborhood is on high alert after garage doors were opened, cars and belongings rifled through, and several items stolen. The latest of the burglaries happened around 3 a.m. on the 3000 block of Grand Avenue. 

Now they're fighting back, hoping by getting some surveillance footage out, someone can help catch the people they think are responsible. 

In the video, you can see what looks like two people walking up to garages, checking to see if they're unlocked, and moving on.    

While it seems they didn't have any luck at the garages here, someone did manage to get into some down the street.   

Now neighbors are hoping someone takes a close look here and can help before it happens again.  

"It kind of freaks me out we can't just leave our doors unlocked and people won't come in anymore," Matt Wakeen says. 

For him, the days of leaving any door unlocked are over ever since he woke up one morning and went outside to find this: "My door was open, the thieves had crawled over my car to get to my bikes that were hanging in my garage, they stole an iPod, they stole a military backpack I had all my schoolbooks in," Wakeen says. 

He says he and his family are normally pretty good about locking up, but these alleged burglars-- got to them at the wrong time. 

"We lock our doors every night, we're very very particular about locking the windows, locking the doors, but just forgot, and it happened to be that night they came through," Wakeen says. 

Down the street, another neighbor also noticed some things missing after a visit from police. 

"The officer noticed that our side garage door was open so he was concerned something had been taken from the garage," another neighbor says. 

Luckily, nothing of value was taken, but neighbors say it makes them think twice. 

"I guess I consider myself lucky, and we'll probably need to get the lock repaired on the side door so we can just feel like there's a little bit more security," the neighbor says. 

"At some point in time that could be our house, not just our detached garage, it's scary," Wakeen says. 

They're hoping to spread the word to lock your doors no matter what.

"Lock your doors, people are going to take your stuff if you don't pay attention, it was the one time for us, and it's going to be the one time for you."
