More than $4,000 in property was stolen over the weekend from a car in Newport Beach, police reported.

The burglary took place just after 7 a.m. from a car parked in the 100 block of Drakes Bay Drive. Jennifer Manzella, police spokeswoman, said a suspect broke the back window of the car and stole golf clubs, golf equipment and cash from the vehicle.

The suspect also caused about $300 in damage to the car during the burglary.

Vehicle Safety Tips:

  • Take valuables out: Remove all valuable from plain sight or hide them before arriving at your destination.
  • Lock your vehicle: Verify your vehicle is securely locked before leaving the area.
  • Close your windows: An open window or sunroof allows for quick entry into your vehicle by a thief – Always check that they are completely shut before leaving your vehicle.
