"It looks like the same people that are doing it," Joe Piket, with the Minnesota Child Care Association, said. "So the frustration is they've been able to get away with it for so long. We are on heightened alert in our parking lots until these guys are caught. "

The Minnesota Child Care Association is reminding parents to not leave valuables inside their car when picking up or dropping off their children at day care.
