Nice weather brings out walkers and thieves. People parking at parks or trail heads should beware.
Kim who asked her last name not be used is a victim of a car break-in. Kim said, “I’ve learned you can’t leave your purse hidden in your car that’s locked.”
Kim wonders if a thief or thieves were watching when she parked at a trail entrance in a neighborhood near 192nd and Harrison. Within 15 minutes someone smashed her driver’s side window and took her purse well hidden under the driver’s seat. Inside a credit card, three debit cards and more than a hundred dollars in cash.
Within minutes the card was used at one convenience store for gas and a suspect tried it again an hour later. Kim had canceled it by that time so the manager took the card. Sherrie Papineau who manages the 156th street store said about the suspect who tried to use a card with Kim’s name on it. “He said it belonged to his mother. I asked for a phone number and he said it was in the car. When he left I knew I wouldn’t see him again.”
Kim retrieved videos from both convenience stores to turn over to sheriff’s deputies. Anyone with information should call Sarpy county Crimestoppers at 592-STOP
