15 cars broken into at Magic Springs


HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (KTHV) - Hot Springs police confirmed that someone broke into 15 cars in the Magic Springs parking lot on Saturday.

Police say some cars were unlocked, but others had their windows smashed.

"She's like 'Your windows broken. Somebody broke into your van' at first I thought she was kidding," said Rich Cadwalader, who drove with Terri Smith, and two others to the "Three Doors Down" concert at Magic Springs last weekend.

"We had fun, but going through a situation like that was very hectic," said Smith.

The suspect left behind plenty of broken glass, but stole two bags, one with clothes and toiletries, and the other was a purse left underneath a back seat.

"She had over $200. She just got paid, driver's license, birth certificate, her car keys, her house keys," said Smith.
