A string of vehicle break-ins happened Saturday night on December 2 in Graves County, Kentucky.

According to Graves County Sheriff Dewayne Redmon, 35 vehicles were broken into overnight.

Redmon said people in a 15-20 mile radius were affected, and it doesn't appear a specific area was targeted.

The sheriff said they received the first call after 11 p.m. 

A variety of items were stolen including money, Christmas gifts, tools and a toolbox.

He said bigger items like guns were left untouched in one vehicle.

All of the vehicles were left unlocked at the time of the break-ins.
