A few residents on Uncle Bud Road fell victim to a thief early Wednesday morning, according to sheriff’s office incident reports.
Deputies received the first call at around 7:52 a.m. Someone apparently shattered a vehicle’s door window and stole a purse, which was on the passenger’s seat.
The Dooney and Bourke purse is valued at $250.
At 9:10 a.m., another resident called to report that someone broke a side window of her vehicle but didn’t take anything.
And in a third incident, a resident called to report that someone broke into her vehicle and stole a basket of computer equipment. The basket and its contents are valued at $10.
She told deputies that her vehicle was secured and intact at 1 a.m., but she noticed that her rear driver’s side window was shattered at 10:59 a.m.
In an unrelated incident report, a Charleston Highway man reported someone stole his 2002 beige Cadillac Escalade EST.
The man reported that he started the Cadillac’s engine at 4:20 a.m. and then went inside of his residence.
His girlfriend heard what sounded like a door shut. He heard a vehicle driving off and an engine accelerating.
The man thought he saw his vehicle headed toward Bowman. He didn’t see the driver.
The Cadillac had tinted windows and 26-inch chrome rims.
The value of the vehicle is $3,500.
