OLIVETTE, MO (KTVI)-- There was a rude awakening in an Olivette neighborhood when about 20 cars got broken into overnight.

It happened on a half mile stretch of Old Bonhomme.

The thieves got away with cash, purses and other valuables.

Police say only a few windows were broken and many car doors were unlocked. However, detectives think inexperienced crooks are behind this crime.

The rainy weather may make it harder for investigators to lift finger prints from the car.
