Nugent said none of the cars were forcibly broken into — all were unlocked. Cash appears to be the only item missing, and a flashlight was left behind in one of the vehicles according to a post on a community Facebook page.

Nugent said the thefts should serve as a reminder to people to always lock their vehicles and never leave valuables in plain sight.

Anyone with information or a report of missing items should contact Kennebunk police at 207-985-6121.
