Burglar strikes mayor's car near downtown

Car burglars in Houston hit Mayor Annise Parker's vehicle, just west of downtown.

The mayor sent out a tweet early Friday, thanking a neighbor for calling police at two in the morning after spotting the burglary in progress. The crook wasn't able to get anything and ran off before police arrived.

Neighbors say they've seen car burglaries on their street before, but not very often.
