Police say a Ridge man broke into several cars while the owners worked out at the gym.

Several people reported thefts in the parking lot of the new Planet Fitness on Route 25A in Rocky Point. Police set up surveillance cameras to catch the alleged thief.

Police say on Monday night they caught 22-year-old Daniel Donaghue in the act, breaking into a car. Police believe Donaghue is responsible for at least six break-ins.

Cops say Donaghue was using the cash to buy cigarettes, gas and tattoos.

Donaghue was arraigned yesterday in Central Islip.
