14 cars broken into at Maryland Heights hotels


MARYLAND HEIGHTS, Mo. – More than one dozen cars were broken into early Wednesday morning in Maryland Heights.

Just before 2:30 a.m. four cars were hit at the Elmwood Hotel. Less than a mile away, four more vehicles were broken into at the Homewood Suites. All of those cars had their rear passenger windows smashed out.

In the garage area of the Hollywood Casino, 6 vehicles were broken into.

“I look at my car, and I saw my window in the grass. It was a big chunk. I called 911,” hotel guest Vicki Holbrook said. “My window don’t work. It’s unfair, who deserves this? (I) would give them anything if they needed it.”

Another hotel guest Jane Ball said she was shocked by the car break-ins.

“I woke up, I did not know that cars got broken onto. It was shocking to hear this. I never heard of anything like this at this hotel,” Ball said.

It’s unclear at this time if the break-ins are connected.

FOX 2’s Nissan Rogue Runner reporter Jason Maxwell was at the scene.
