Rock Hill Police say someone walked away with $5,000 in Christmas gifts stashed inside a car at a Rock Hill apartment complex overnight Tuesday.

Police say a Ridgeway man was visiting a friend at the Cushendall Commons Apartments on Arklow Drive when he found the rear window of his GMC Yukon broken in Wednesday morning.

Rock Hill Police spokesman Lt. Brad Redfearn says securing your valuables from view can go a long way towards deterring thieves.

Items stolen include jewelery, cash, sunglasses, stereo equipment and silverware.
