A car burglar smashed the passenger side window of a 2004 Toyota SUV Tuesday, and stole two purses, according to Bloomington Police Department Capt. Ryan Pedigo. The victims of the break-in were at Leonard Springs Nature Park for a wedding photography session.
The theft occurred between 6:15 p.m. and 8:10 p.m. A victim of the crime thought they heard the vehicle’s alarm sounding around 7 p.m.
Credit card fraud was attempted afterward with a card stolen during the burglary. The case is still active.
Bloomington Police Department Capt. Ryan Pedigo reminds residents to avoid leaving valuables plainly visible in vehicles.
