On 02/18/2020 between the hours of 12:15 PM and 1:17 PM, a burglary to a motor vehicle occurred at the Arboretum Park located on Harlingen Rd. Two other vehicles were burglarized at the Skillman Park between the hours of 4:45 PM and 5:30 PM on 02/23/2020. In all three vehicles, purses were left on the passenger side in the vehicle when the operator exited. Unknown defendants broke out the passenger side window and stole the purses which contained cash, credit cards, and other valuables. The victim’s credit cards were used shortly after in at least one of the cases. The vehicles were all locked and unoccupied while the victims were using the respective parks. In all three cases, the victims had left their purses in plain view. Residents are encouraged to lock their vehicles and to remove valuable items from plain view when the vehicle is unoccupied.
