FAIRFIELD, Conn. -- Four more car break-ins -- with smashed windows and stolen items -- were reported Monday evening at the Edge Fitness Center, Fairfield police said.  

The break-ins occurred between 5:30 and 9 p.m. Monday in cars parked at the Edge Fitness Center, police said. 

The first call came shortly before 8:30 p.m., with a report of a smashed front passenger side window and a black Garmin Nuvi GPS valued at $200 taken, police said. The glove compartment had been opened and rummaged through, but the complainant said nothing appeared to have been taken. 

At 8:40 p.m., the left rear window of a Nissan Rogue was smashed and a black and white Tommy Hilfiger purse, bank cards, driver's license, Social Security cards, cash and a perfume bottle were taken, police said. Medical equipment was also missing from the car, police said. 

A Michael Kors purse and two portable DVD players were taken from a Subaru Forester after a rear window was smashed, police said. Sunglasses, headphones and a Coach wallet containing credit cards, bank card, driver's license, Social Security card and a birth certificate were also taken. Two unsuccessful attempts to use the card had been made in Bridgeport.

Shortly after 9 p.m., the owner of a fourth car reported a smashed right front window, police said. A Steve Madden purse, black wallet with bank cards, credit cards, retail store cards and driver's license were taken, police said. A Coach change purse and an employee ID card were also missing, police said.

Just like you see security guards driving identified security cars through the parking lot at several shopping centers (shop rite, CVS, Stop&Shop, etc), they need to do the same thing, there have been too many incidents at this point.

I'd like to know what, if any, preventive measures are being taken by the Fitness Edge owners to end these on-going car break-ins in its lot. One victim told me that the people on duty in the gym offered little sympathy when she told them about her plight. What gives?
