Saturday (03/17/12) at approximately 11:40 am, Officer Jeff Bell was dispatched to a theft call. His investigation revealed that a purse was stolen from inside an unlocked vehicle in the 2400 block of S. 34th Street and that this occurred while the victim was at a garage sale. This is another example from which to remind our community that property inside vehicles, regardless of where you are located, is an attractive target for would-be thieves. Purses usually contain valuable assets, such as credit cards and cash. Take the extra few seconds necessary to secure your belongings regardless of the venue and remove valuables from inside your car. Officer Bell took a report for Burglary of a Motor Vehicle and this investigation continues.
