    Someone smashed the windows of four vehicles parked at the LA Fitness on Buckland Road in Simsbury early Monday morning and stole purses, cash, checkbooks and cell phones, police said.

    Police responded to the fitness center at 6:15 a.m. and found smashed side windows and discovered that the items were taken from a silver Ford Fusion, a white Audi Q5, a black VW Jetta and a Ford Escape.

    Police are asking anyone who saw suspicious activity at the gym between 6 a.m. and 6:15 a.m. on Monday call the South Windsor Police at 860-644-2551.

    The department is also urging people to hide valuables, including purses, laptop bags, GPS units and phones, in your vehicle’s trunk or under a privacy screen in SUVs, to deter thieves, especially during the holiday shopping season.
