Police are reminding you to take your valuables with you, whenever you are not in your car. The warning comes after three cars are broken into in south Tyler and a fourth attempt was made.
The burglaries happened sometime this morning at an office on Old Bullard Road, the IHOP on the loop, Toys R Us and the Shelley Drive Animal Clinic.
One of the animal hospital employees had her window smashed in with a hammer, and her purse stolen from inside. Police soon found that purse in a dumpster.
A short time later, they arrested 28 year old Anthony Hamilton. Police found him leaving Toys R Us where one of the cars was broken into. He's now facing 3 charges of auto burglary.
