Shoppers at the Fashion Centre at Pentagon City are warned not to leave valuables in their cars.

Police in Northern Virginia are investigating after a number of cars parked at the Pentagon City mall in Arlington were targeted this week by thieves.

Arlington police detectives are warning shoppers at The Fashion Centre at Pentagon City to lock their vehicles and take their valuables with them, after 10 break-ins were reported in just one day. Thieves stole personal possessions from those vehicles, including two law enforcement cars.

It's not clear if any sensitive materials or police equipment was taken from those unmarked police vehicles.

The brazen crimes happened between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Tuesday across four different levels at the mall.
