HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) - Authorities say someone took advantage of the winter storm to break into vehicles abandoned on Interstate 59 in the Hattiesburg area as the ice and snow storm worsened.

A Mississippi Highway Patrol spokesman tells WDAM-TV (http://bit.ly/1nkn5cf ) that several vehicles were burglarized Tuesday night.

Windows were broken and radios were taken, troopers say.

The Highway Patrol continues to investigate.
