New Garden police issue theft warning

On Wednesday, Feb. 24,  between 8:40 and 8:50 a.m. the New Garden Police Department received a spate of theft complaints involving unlocked vehicles that were parked in the lot of the New Garden Early Care  in the 200 block of New Garden Road.

One of the three victims reported leaving their vehicle briefly while dropping off their child to daycare, which enabled law enforcement to identify the 10-minute time frame. The other two victims worked at that location. All of the vehicles were left unlocked, a police press release said.

Upon returning to their vehicles, the victims discovered that their wallets and contents were stolen. The suspects targeted the victims’ financial or personal identification items, such as checkbooks, credit and health insurance cards.

The investigation has been assigned to detectives who are working with regional law enforcement agencies, which have experienced similar incidents, the release said.
