One Car Window Smashed, Another Damaged During Car Break-In

Victim was attending class at local gym when incident occurred.

The latest entering auto victim at a local workout facility ended up with not one, but two damaged windows.

A Dacula woman parked her car at at approximately 7:25 p.m. on Nov. 14. When she returned to her car an hour later, her front passenger side window had been damaged in what the officer described in the police report as a “first attempt to enter the window.” The second attempt, on the rear passenger side window, was successful.

The thief or thieves stole a Dooney & Bourke purse valued at $300. According to the victim, nothing of value was inside the handbag. The cost to repair the window damage to the victim’s 2004 Lincoln Navigator is estimated to be $400.

The case is listed as active.

Police are also investigating a Nov. 20 entering auto on Fairview Club Circle. According to the victim, someone entered his company vehicle and stole a GPS unit valued at $400. There were no signs of forced entry and the victim was uncertain if the vehicle doors had been locked.

That case is also listed as active.
