Police are investigating two vehicle break-ins that occurred in the east parking lot Friday morning.
The suspect broke into two cars around 11:30 a.m. Friday by smashing the side windows. An iPod touch and two wallets were taken from one vehicle and no items appeared to be missing from the second vehicle.
Witnesses called the police, but the suspect had left before police arrived on the scene. The possible suspect vehicle, white in color, looked similar to an older model Chevrolet Suburban, according to witness accounts.
