The break-ins happened between 11:00 a.m. and noon.

Police say someone broke into several parked cars on the campus.

According to officials, the suspect backed in next to the vehicles, shattered the glass and then entered the vehicles, removing stereos and parts.

UD Police have released a surveillance photo that shows a vehicle connected to the incidents, a white SUV, possibly a Saturn Vue.

* Park in well lit densely populated areas
* Be on the lookout for anyone who looks out of place and call 911 immediately to report any suspicious behavior.
