PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Smash and grab thefts from cars are on the rise — here and throughout the country.

For the thief — it’s quick and easy — smashing a car window — taking some valuables and fleeing the scene.

At the head of the Eliza Furnace trail people park their cars and go for a bike ride or run along the river.

But this past weekend — smash and grab thieves busted into a half dozen cars leaving piles of broken glass.

On a recent Sunday Dr. Ken Katz came back from his run to his car window smashed and his cellphone gone.

Katz said it wasn’t the first time either.

“No it was actually the second time with a span of three or four months,” he said.

Smash and grab car thefts have become the crime of choice for petty thieves everywhere.
