LONE TREE, Colo. -- Douglas County sheriff's deputies said a handful of cars were broken into at an apartment complex near Interstate 25 and Lincoln Avenue.
Residents woke up Wednesday morning to the damage to their vehicles and theft of some valuables.
Authorities released a surveillance picture of a man, they say, who is using a credit card taken from one of the vehicles.
The man whose credit card was stolen is a U.S. Army veteran who served with the 82nd Airborne in Iraq and Afghanistan.
He said some mementos from his days in the Army that are not replaceable were stolen as well. He issued a call for the thief to do the right thing and return those belongings he can't replace.
The vehicle was locked, but others were not.
