Auto Burglary Reminder

Yesterday at about 5:45 PM, a woman parked her car near Longley Way School on Warren Way, north of Las Tunas Drive. Her intention was to only be gone a few minutes. She locked her vehicle but left her purse inside. When the victim returned, she saw a suspect reaching inside her car and taking her purse. The suspect then fled to an awaiting vehicle and left the area.

The suspect was only described as a male Hispanic in his 20's, dark clothing and short dark hair. The suspect vehicle was a newer model, dark brown 4-door sedan with unknown type or color paper dealer plates. The suspect vehicle was being driven by an older female Hispanic, large build, 50-60 years old.

Even with the vehicle locked, the suspect was able to easily break a window and gain entry to the car. DO NOT leave valuable items in plain sight in your car, even if only away for a few minutes. This type of crime takes only seconds to commit.

Car burglaries are very difficult cases to solve as there is usually very little physical evidence left behind after one has occurred.
