Fifteen vehicles were broken into over the weekend in a Rock Hill neighborhood.
The incidents occurred overnight Saturday on Winthrop Drive, Thornwell Avenue, and Sedgewood Drive, police reports indicate.
The vehicles were all unlocked. Some cars were rummaged through but nothing was taken. Others had personal property stolen, including a bow and arrows, a Garmin GPS, two Sony DVD players, an iPod, and a gym bag, police say.
Police estimate over $2,000 in property was stolen from the vehicles.
Many of the vehicles were not processed by police, due to either heavy rain or contamination of the scene by the victim, police say.
“It’s important that people remember to lock their cars whenever they step away from their vehicle,” said Rock Hill Police spokesman Mark Bollinger.
Bollinger also recommends that people take items out of their vehicles or place them out of sight.
“We need to make it harder for the people breaking into cars,” Bollinger said.
