Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE COUNTY, S.C. -

Cops say someone shot out the window of a truck and took items from several cars in one Greenville County neighborhood.

Randall Tate tells 7 On Your Side he woke up to the sound of shots in his normally silent Mauldin neighborhood, Monday morning. He says it wasn't until day light when he found out he was a victim of vandalism and theft.

"They shot they shot the window out just to get a purse," said Tate.

Mauldin Police tells 7 On Your Side someone broke into 11 other vehicles in the Planters Row neighborhood. According to police reports, the 11 unlocked cars were missing wallets, purses and other valuables. An airsoft pistol was taken from one car, according to reports.

Mauldin Police says someone also broke into an unlocked, unmarked Greenville County deputy's SUV, taking ammo and a pair of handcuffs.

"Yeah, you feel violated, and it makes you upset," said neighbor Curtis Johnson.

Investigators believe there could be more victims who just aren't aware that someone broke into their cars Monday morning.

Mauldin officers say give them a call if you live in the area and saw or heard anything suspicious around 5am, Monday.
