MILFORD -

One or more crooks broke into three cars parked outside three separate Milford gyms Tuesday night, police say.

It happened between 6 and 7:30 p.m. at the YMCA, LA Fitness and Edge Fitness gyms.

Tammy Shallis, one of the victims, says she came out of the YMCA to find all of her car windows smashed and many personal items stolen.

Shallis says she believes whoever stole from her watched her park and go into the gym before striking.

"Within five minutes, they smashed my window," she says.

The thievery will cost her about $1,000 in damage to her car in addition to the thefts of her son's cellphone and Beats headphones, a video game system, her pocket book and other items.

Police say people should be aware of their surroundings, and gymgoers say you shouldn't leave valuables in the car.
