According to authorities, someone smashed the windows out of two vehicles and entered two more vehicles parked behind Gardner Eye Care between 9:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.

“The offender or offenders only took items that could be easily obtained from within the main cabin of the vehicles,” said Lt. Justin Lovvorn.
