Purse snatched from parking lot

(ABC 6 News) – A woman’s car window was smashed and her purse was stolen during a Rochester park visit Sunday.

Rochester police reported that a 41-year-old woman parked her car at Foster Arend park at about 6 p.m. Oct. 2, and left her purse in the vehicle.

When she returned at about 7:40 p.m., she found her car window smashed and the purse missing.

The woman estimated that she lost about $60 in the theft, though the purse had also contained her credit cards and check book.

Capt. Casey Moilanen with the RPD said thieves do look for valuable items in car parks, so visitors should not leave anything in their car that they do not want to see stolen.
