ARNOLD, Mo. (KMOV.com) – Police in Arnold are investigating 11 different car break-ins that occurred during the same week where the thieves got away with a gun, a credit card, hundreds of dollars in cash, prescription medicine and a Samsung tablet in addition to other items.

The first break-in occurred between 9:30 p.m. on September 4 and 8 a.m. on September 5 in the 2100 block of Christy Drive. Someone broke the front passenger window and stole a purse containing credit cards and a checkbook.

Another sedan parked in the 1400 block of Fox Ridge Court was left unlocked and a Samsung tablet was stolen. The tablet was later recovered in the area, but had suffered water damage from the rain. Someone damaged the rear passenger window of an SUV parked in the 1200 block of Arnold Tenbrook Road causing over $1,000 in damage and also stole a purse containing $100 in cash, medication, and a wallet.
