The recent spate of break-ins of automobiles continues, according to the Commerce Police Department.
During the past week, three more cases occurred.
Two of them were in the fenced parking lot of Baker & Taylor books where thieves took advantage of a company policy prohibiting all but clear bags from the building to steal purses left in two vehicles.
A 20-year-old white female said someone entered her Toyota Scion by breaking out the passenger-side window. The thief grabbed a purse that was hidden under cover on the back floor. He got $140 in cash, two bank credit cards, two other credit cards, a checkbook and miscellaneous other items.
