A dozen vehicles were broken into on Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, according to Rock Hill police.

Police spokesperson Mark Bollinger said break-ins are all related.

Ten of the break-ins occurred near the intersection of Mt. Gallant Road and Celanese Road. Another was off Heckle Boulevard near Saluda Street and off Rawlsville Road.

Several of the vehicle owners were aware that their vehicles had been broken into after finding the contents of their glove boxes and center consoles dumped onto the passenger seat and floor boards, according to the reports

Only one of the owners was sure he had locked his car doors. All other victims said their vehicles were unlocked or they were unsure if they locked them.

One victim reported that he heard his garage door open shortly before 4 a.m. on Wednesday. He saw two men wearing hoodies running down the driveway, but police were unable to locate the suspects.
