Stolen Diaper Bag Carried More Than Diapers

A stolen baby bag has caused a Sarpy County couple to change more than diapers. A wallet with credit and debit cards were inside.

An opportunistic thief spotted their garage door open and grabbed the diaper bag sitting on the front seat of the family van. Ben Vetter said, "I didn't figure anyone would come in during daylight hours and walk into our garage so it was disconcerting. But we talked to neighbors and everyone has a better eye out."

Leanne Vetter had put her wallet in an inside pouch and suspects the suspect didn't know it was in there. Leanne said, "It was definitely upsetting, i felt violated." Also frustrated after learning a woman used her identity and the stolen cards to buy prepaid credit cards and gift cards from four Omaha metro stores. Several hundred dollars worth.

Sarpy County Sheriff's investigator Dana Harrah obtained several security camera photos of a woman using the stolen credit cards.

Anyone with information on the theft should call Sarpy County Crimestoppers at 402-592-STOP.
