Bridgewater Police aren't saying if the incidents are related, other than the targets are similar and the incidents happened not far from one another.  The first incident happened on Wednesday afternoon. A purse was taken out of a vehicle parked at the LaHave Street ball field. That was sometime between 4:45 and 5:40pm.  And on Thursday afternoon, someone smashed out a passenger window smashed in a grey Honda Civic and stole a purse sitting on the seat.  The vehicle was parked at the HB Studios fieldhouse on Glen Allan Extension.  Police are asking for people to get ahold of them if they saw anyone hanging out in the parking lot last Thursday between 4:10 and 4:30.
