Woman’s Purse Stolen in Smash and Grab Vehicle Burglary, Possibly Second Today
SPRING HILL – Deputies are searching for a suspect who broke into a woman’s car and stole her purse just minutes ago.
The victim, Elizabeth Brownell, tells RNRF that she ran into her model center located on Beryl Road (Palmwood Builders), when a red SUV pulled up next to her car. Brownell says she was inside less than 5 minutes, when she looked out and noticed a “flash of her purse” being taken from her car window. Before she could make it outside to catch the suspect, Brownell says she was already gone.
Brownell says the first three letters of the suspect vehicle’s tag is BRV.
The suspect broke the passenger side window to access the victim’s purse.
The vehicle was last seen headed southbound from the scene of the crime and has yet to be located.
There are unconfirmed reports that the suspect vehicle may be the same one used in an earlier smash and grab vehicle burglary.
