The burglary happened on Wednesday, April 24, at approximately 12:45 p.m. It appears the victim was followed from her bank less than two miles away, where she had withdrawn a sizable amount of money. When the victim parked and went into the store, one of the suspects approached her car and broke her passenger side window. He reached into the front seat and made off with the envelope that her money had been in. Lucky for her, she had taken the money out and the stolen envelope only had a small amount of change inside.

“As a reminder, when leaving the bank, please be aware of your surroundings and of anyone who may be following you,” said Heap. “Conceal your money before you leave the bank. Do not leave bank envelopes in your car after withdrawing money. If possible, make banking the last stop of your errands. If you notice you’re being followed from a bank, call 911 and let the dispatcher know where you are and which direction you are headed. Keep driving until a marked police car finds you.”
