The Anderson County sheriff says four of his patrol cars have been broken into during the past week.
Sheriff John Skipper says the thieves took weapons, bullet-proof vests, uniforms and jackets.
Skipper says three of the four cars broken into were unmarked vehicles. They were all parked at deputies' homes, and the sheriff doesn't know if the thefts were random or the patrol cars were targeted.
A Department of Natural Resources officer says someone broke into his locked patrol car at an Anderson County boat ramp earlier this month and took a shotgun, an agency jacket and a digital camera and also tried to steal his blue lights.
The sheriff says other law enforcement agencies across the Southeast have been targets of thefts in the past few months.
