— At least six cars parked at Rock Hill apartment complexes were broken into this weekend when thieves shattered windows and stole radios, a tool set, bow and one woman’s driver’s license, police say.

At about 6 a.m. Sunday, police met with a man, 30, at Patriot's Crossing and Gable Oaks apartments off Cherry Road after he reported that the back window of his car had been broken into and $5 cash stolen, according to a Rock Hill police report. Around the same time, police spoke with another man, 61, who told officers someone smashed out the front driver’s side window of his pickup truck and stole his GPS worth $125.

A woman, 20, also reported to police that thieves broke into her car, smashed out the front passenger’s side window and took her North Carolina driver’s license.

Thirty minutes later, one of the responding officers noticed a maroon Chevrolet with a broken front passenger’s window, police said. Police spoke with the owner, 44, who said she did not realize her car had been vandalized. She looked through her car and noted that nothing had been taken. Several hours later, that same woman called reporting that a $80 socket wrench set was missing from beneath her front passenger’s seat.

At about 7 a.m., a man, 25, reported that he found the front passenger’s side window of his Jeep broken into and his $30 radio missing, police documents show. An hour later, a woman reported that thieves broke into her father’s truck and stole a compound bow.

Police are investigating the thefts as connected and are following leads, said Mark Bollinger, police spokesman.
