Vehicle break-in at SAGU; Police seek help in identification
WAXAHACHIE – The recent break-in of a car parked at the Southern Assemblies of God University has the Waxahachie Police Department looking for a female suspect last seen in Dallas.
The young, white, female broke into the vehicle on Wednesday, Nov. 3 according to Lt. Todd Woodruff.
Woodruff said the unidentified female used an Oklahoma driver license and a credit card stolen from the vehicle break-in at SAGU to purchase a wedding ring and car stereo equipment from a Dallas pawn shop.
Store surveillance cameras caught the suspect and an unidentified male accompanying her at the pawn shop.
Waxahachie Police Department is asking for anyone who recognizes the male or female in the picture shown to please call 972-937-9940.
Despite several arrests in September, burglary of motor vehicles are an ongoing problem according to Woodruff.
"There has been an increase in BMV reports around the restaurants and parking lots in the area of Highway 77 and 287 and up into the 1400 block of 77," said Woodruff.
Navigation devices, laptops and MP3 players are often stolen as well as purses, debit cards and check books.
Even if you are leaving your car for a five minute break, you should never leave anything valuable in your vehicle of choice.
