Burglars broke into 87 Public Storage units in Harris County

HARRIS COUNTY, Texas - At the Public Storage facility along I-45 near FM 1960, you'll find a really big mess.

"I couldn't do anything but cry tears," said Joyce Jackson.

Jackson wiped those tears aside to shoot video of what was left after thieves broke into her unit and 86 others.

Harris County Precinct 4 Constables office says it happened on Friday. There were possibly 4 suspects in a UHaul and one lookout. They had gate codes and used bolt cutters to open padlocks.

They took big ticket items like Kelvin Jackson's carpentry tools and the family's saddles for trail riding.

"I have a custom made pink and black zebra saddle that I probably paid about 2000 bucks for"

Public Storage wouldn't let us on their property or talk about what happened. They are hoping to get more information from their security cameras.

Meanwhile, dozens of customers have a lot of questions.

"It is now Monday going on Tuesday and nobody has even said that they're fixing the locks that go on our storage," said Jackson. "At the beginning of the month, I'm responsible for paying for that unit."

The thieves drove through an access gate on their way out. The onsite live-in manager only caught a glimpse of them leaving in the packed UHaul.

They were last seen heading North on I-45.
