While moviegoers were watching evil wizards at Regal Augusta Exchange 20 Tuesday night, some even darker forces were breaking into their vehicles in the parking lot.

Three people reported that someone broke the windows to their vehicles and stole car stereos, Ipods, digital cameras and other items between Tuesday at 11:40 p.m. and Wednesday at 3:21 a.m., according to Richmond County Sheriff’s reports.

Theaters across the area, including Regal Augusta Exchange 20, held sold-out midnight showings of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince early Wednesday.

The total amount of items stolen in all three cases is valued at $2,555.
