Police are investigating more than 30 vehicle break-ins in a single Queens community overnight, authorities said Thursday.

Dozens of windows were broken on vehicles parked overnight near Mount Zion Cemetery on Queens Boulevard between 51st and 58th streets, the NYPD confirmed.

Others were damaged by 47th and Roosevelt, officials said.

Some items were taken, police said, including one car owner's wallet and credit cards. Video shows heavy damage to some of the cars, with glass littering passenger seats and taxi windows smashed.

Some of the cars impacted belong to Uber and Lyft drivers, costing them hundreds of dollars in missed fairs on top of repairs.

Police say their investigation is ongoing.
