Anniston police Monday were investigating a string of vehicle break-ins that were reported to have happened at Saks High School during a high school football playoff game Friday.

According to police reports and Anniston police Capt. Allen George, four vehicles in the high school parking lot were broken into through their front passenger windows between 6 p.m. and 10:30 p.m.

The Saks Wildcats faced Madison Academy on Friday night in a state semifinal game that kicked off at 7 p.m.

George said suspects took purses containing credit cards, debit cards, Social Security cards and cash from the vehicles. The damage to the windows was estimated to be about $300.99, according to police reports.

George said Weaver police phoned him Monday morning to report that officers there had discovered discarded purses on the side of a road, but it was unclear whether they were connected to the thefts in Saks. An attempt Monday by The Star to reach Weaver officers was not immediately successful.

George said the department had no suspects as of Monday morning. Any suspects could face four charges of breaking and entering a vehicle, a felony, according to police reports.
