Seven vehicles were entered within a three-block area -- two parked in the first block of Meadow Lane and five others parked in the 300 and 500 blocks of East Conestoga Street.
Police said windows were smashed to gain entry to the vehicles on Meadow Lane. All the other vehicles were unlocked.
Three iPods were taken, along with binoculars, a wallet and about $100 in cash.
