BELLE VERNON (KDKA) - Police in Westmoreland County are investigating a series of smash and grabs. 

The first took place at Cedar Creek Park last weekend. 

Someone smashed the windows in two vehicles and stole purses from inside. 

Then on Wednesday, three cars at Twin Lakes were broken into. 

"That kind of thing takes seconds, they smash a window, they grab it, and they're gone," said Henry Fontana, the Chief of the Westmoreland County Park Police. "In today's society, you can't leave valuables in plain view, lock things in your trunk, if you see something, say something." 

Chief Fontana said that park police have a few leads they are following up on.
