TRUCKEE, Calif. (AP) - Truckee police say they had to break the window out of an SUV over the weekend after a bear locked himself inside.

Police say the incident late Sunday night in Glenshire was the third time in the past two weeks that a bear's been stuck in a vehicle in the northern California mountain town.

The first time was Sept. 30, when a bear was stuck in a car near a school. Police say the animal broke a window to get out.

In the second incident, on Oct. 8, the car owner let the bear out.

Police say the bears did major damage to the interiors of all three vehicles.

Authorities say bears can open doors, so vehicle owners should lock their cars and roll up windows to prevent ursine intruders.
