An Auburn man and his wife were the latest victims of the “smash and grab” type car break-ins that .
On Sept. 3, the man and his wife were visiting with their daughter. After exiting their truck, the husband and wife noticed a dark-colored minivan occupied by two males parked nearby with its engine running.
In an email to Dacula Patch, the wife wrote that she returned to the truck to get something and noticed the minivan had moved into a spot next to the truck. The wife said she locked the truck and walked away.
“Two minutes later they smashed the window of the truck and took my purse and phone and drove off as we stood 500 feet away at the playground,” she wrote.
The victims were unable to provide a description of the suspects other than their sex and race.
The stolen purse contained multiple credit cards, cash, a Georgia driver’s license, two blank checks and an iPhone.
The case is listed as active.
