A rash of car break-ins in Bluffton last week are under investigation by the town's police department.

More than $7,000 worth of electronics and cash was taken from cars in Mill Creek, Bluffton Park and Townes of Buckwalter overnight Oct. 23, according to Bluffton Police Department incident reports. Windows were smashed in each of the six reported thefts, Capt. Angela McCall-Tanner said.

In one incident, a woman told authorities she saw two people in dark clothing using pen lights to search a pickup truck parked behind her home on Fourth Avenue in Bluffton Park. Panasonic-brand vehicle accessories worth $1,600 were reported missing from the truck, the report said.

In another incident, a computer worth $3,900 and a GPS worth $1,200 were taken from a car parked on Dillar Mill Drive in Mill Creek, according to police.

McCall-Tanner said there was no additional information available Tuesday.
