 WEST PALM BEACH, Fla-- West Palm Beach Police says 25 cars were burglarize in the Presidential Golfview Condominiums.

Police says they’ve arrested 2 teenagers and a 12-year-old in connection with the break-ins.

“My first thought was why?” Azalea Miller is still trying to wrap her head around everything.

She woke up Friday morning to find both of her car windows smashed.

“I’m frustrated about my stuff being broken into,” said Miller.

And she isn’t the only one.

About 25 other cars in the Golfview Condominiums where she lives were also burglarized.

“I’ve got to work. It totally interrupted everything that I had going on today.”

If having it happen once isn’t aggravating enough, for some of her neighbors this is the second time this has happened in less than 3 months.

“I’m just getting tired of it. It’s frustrating,” said Jeanne Morgan who also lives in the Presidential Golfview Condominiums.

Morgan says her car was broken into in April. She hasn’t even had her new car for a full month yet.

Just last month West Palm Beach Police investigated a very similar rash of auto burglaries. 60 cars total. About 25 of them were also in Golfview.

And because of yet another round of break-ins, some residents are debating whether to leave.

“I’m thinking about moving, find me another place so my car could be safe,” said Morgan.

Investigators are looking into whether these young suspects could be responsible for the other car break-ins around the Golfview area.

Police say they are also looking for a fourth accomplice.

As for the security at the complex, management told me there are police officer who patrol the complex at night.
