— Thieves took six pairs of glasses, a “hot pink Taser,” vitamins and a blood pressure monitor in one of three cars broken into near the Galleria area this weekend, police say.

At about 10 a.m. Friday, a man, 27, told authorities he parked his 2009 Red Dodge Avenger in front of his house and “attempted” to lock his car, according to a Rock Hill police report. He said his key sometimes malfunctions and causes the car to sound like it’s locked.

Hours later, he discovered that his $350 GPS was missing from the window mount on the front windshield, the report states. Thieves did not take his barbecue grill or other electronics in the car. Police were unable to lift any fingerprints.

Later that night, a woman, 42, told police that someone broke into her 2011 Honda and stole a GPS, a Dell laptop, an iPhone, an iPod, vitamins, a pink Nike gym bag, workout equipment, an automatic blood pressure monitor and six pairs of glasses, the report states. She reported a total $5,000 worth of valuables stolen from her car, which she told police was locked. Police were able to lift fingerprints.

On Sunday, a 26-year-old Fort Mill man told police that the center decorative caps from all four rims of his 2003 Toyota Sequoia were stolen while he was the Manchester Cinema, another report states. The caps cost an estimated $400.

Last week, residents reported that their cars were broken into near the Galleria and a nearby neighborhood.
