There have also been a seemingly large amount of ‘smash & grab’ auto break ins and it is a good reminder to keep items out of your car and into your trunk. Kris Peradotto checked in with Everything South City today to say he saw two vehicles in the Towne Center with smashed windows during daylight hours.
