Someone broke into six unmarked law enforcement cars in a Kansas City neighborhood and scattered police equipment along the street early this morning.

Police said this morning that they were still trying to determine what was stolen in the break-ins, which were discovered about 2:30 a.m. in the 9600 block of High Court.

Officers noticed police equipment and other items in the street when they were called to the area to investigate gunfire.

The law enforcement vehicles belong to the Kansas City Police and Jackson County Sheriff’s departments. At least one civilian vehicle also was burglarized.
