Police are warning residents in the western suburbs after a series of smash and grab thefts.

Surveillance video from one of the scenes on the south side of Bensenville around 1:30 Monday morning shows a group of suspects cruising through the parking lot of an apartment complex looking for things to steal.

Once they find items, they quickly fan out and start smashing their way into parked vehicles, breaking windows and taking whatever they can. They even rip out expensive stereos and leaving quite a bit of damage behind.

Police say the group has struck a few times. They are seen in a dark green, hubcap-less Dodge minivan.

Anyone with any information is asked to call police.
