Two Designer Purses Stolen Out of Vehicle

Theft occurred in the parking lot of Hamilton Mill club house.

A brazen thief stole two purses out of a vehicle while the car owner watched a tennis match just a short distance away.

The victim said her vehicle was parked near the Hamilton Mill Lakeview tennis courts. When she returned to her car, her purse and her friend’s purse were missing. The victim said she was “almost positive” she had locked her vehicle. According to the police report, there was no sign of forced entry.

The victim’s driver’s license, check card and a credit card were in her purse at the time of the theft. The purse, a Louis Vuitton, had an estimated value of $800. The purse also contained a $750 Louis Vuitton wallet and a $300 Garmon watch.

The victim’s friend also had several credit cards, a check card and a driver’s license in her purse.  Additionally, the friend’s purse, a Dooney and Bourke purse valued at $260, contained a Coach wallet with an estimated value of $100, keys and a State of Georgia identification card.

There were no witnesses to the March 27 incident. The case is listed as active.

Five nail guns, three staple guns, several Craftsman tools, several Chicago Air tools, a DeWalt table saw and a DeWalt drill were reported missing.

I regret to hear these two ladies were the victims of theft. Two things though. #1. Don't think you have locked your car or locked your house. Know! Check and recheck. My wife gets on me all the time for walking around our vehicle and checking ALL doors after I have locked same. #2. You may also be the victims of identity theft. To ALL of you Dacula Patch readers, if you do not have identity theft coverage included in your honeowner's insurance policy, I highly recommend that you add same to your policy. The additional cost is nominal and well worth the peace of mind.

Identity Theft is the fastest white collar crime in America.The average time to resolve for individuals on their own is 55-130 hours and between $1,200-$5,000 to resolve. The FTC Annual Sentinel Study says that only 16.5% of identity theft is detectable on a credit report. Insurance is great but we offer restoration ... CALL ME . We can help.....404-545-0522
