MILLERSVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Police are investigating after eight unlocked cars were burglarized in Millersville over the weekend.

According to a release, it happened between 10 p.m. Saturday and 7 a.m. Sunday in the Cimarron Trace subdivision off of Williamson Road.

Police said the suspects stole a Glock 23 handgun, cash, designer handbags, power tools and prescription medication.

News 2 spoke with Amelia Andrews who said she had nearly $1,300 and a handgun stolen from her car. She said she was planning to use the money to take her three children to Disney World.

“They didn’t take from me – they took my hard earned money. They took from my children,” Andrews said. “We are still going. It will take extra time to make it up.”

Millersville police are reminding residents to lock their doors and never leave valuables inside their vehicles, especially a weapon.

“I hate that,” Sgt. Bob Watson said. “A gun is the worst thing to be stolen because it will be used in a crime.”

Andrews said she is offering a reward for information that leads to an arrest and conviction of the burglar.
