(WMC-TV) - Nineteen cars were broken into overnight in the Ridgeway community, and one car was even completely stolen.

The pile of glass in Micah Taylor's driveway Wednesday will cost her $158 out of pocket.

"Insurance doesn't cover that deductible," she said. "And they hit this whole cove."

The slew of break-ins happened all within a few blocks on Crimmins Cove and Sulgrave and Spey drives.

"I'm upset about it. We have a nice neighborhood and there's no sense in this," said Taylor.

Among the victims is a United States Marine off serving his country, a Tennessee State Trooper, in-laws visiting from out of town, and a guy who shares a name with the most famous pop star of all time.

"A state of shock, disbelief," said victim Michael Jackson. "I woke up this morning and my car was missing ... I thought maybe I was daydreaming. I walk back and my car wasn't there ... It's a used Acura, but it's mine. That's the thing about it, it's mine. It's not theirs, it's mine. And I want it."

Besides getting his car back Jackson wants the same thing as Taylor.

"I'd love for [police] to catch them," said Taylor.

If you can help solve this case call Crime Stoppers at 528-CASH.
