AMHERST — Windows of two vehicles parked near conservation areas were smashed and GPS navigation units were stolen during a three-day period, according to police.
The first incident was reported at 2:28 p.m. Friday, when a person who parked in a lot off Mill Street near Puffer’s Pond returned after being gone for two hours to find that a window was smashed and a GPS was stolen, said Detective Jamie Reardon.
And at 5:56 p.m. Sunday, a person whose vehicle was parked at Amethyst Brook Conservation Area on Pelham Road said a window was broken to gain access. Reardon said a wallet and GPS were stolen. A debit card in the wallet was later used to make purchases at a Hadley store.
Both incidents remain under investigation.
