The Sudbury Police Department is investigating two car-breaks that occurred on Saturday.
One car-break happened on Wayside Inn Road at the Grist Mill. The department received the call at about 2:51 p.m.
When officers arrived, they noticed the passenger-side window was smashed.
One person reported her Versace purse, with an estimated value of $5,000, was stolen, Lt. Scott Nix said. Among the items in the purse were an iPhone, $250 in cash and numerous credit cards.
The other car break happened on Dutton Road.
The department received a 911 call from a mother who said her daughter's car had been parked at the Hop Brook Conservation Land.
Nix said someone gained entry by also smashing the passenger-side window and stole a purse.
Because of the two car-breaks, Nix said patrols were increased in both areas and numerous cars were checked out later in the day, but nothing suspicious was found.
Both cases are under investigation.
