Vehicle Burglaries on the Rise, as Thousands Rush to Finish Last Minute Christmas Shopping
SPRING HILL – Vehicle burglaries are on the rise, as the clock ticks for last minute Christmas shopping. And one women found out the hard way what happens when you leave your vehicle doors unlocked – even for just a moment.
Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the Walgreens Drug Store, located at Mariner Blvd and Cortez Blvd this evening, after a woman called 911 to report that her purse was stolen out of her car.
There are unconfirmed reports that the vehicle door was left open, making it an easy target for would-be thieves casing the store’s parking lot.
The victim did not wish to comment on the incident.
Deputies are en route to the location of a possible suspect, after witnesses were able to capture the suspect’s vehicle tag.
Officials say lock your doors and do not leave valuable items in plain view while away from your vehicle.
