(La Porte County, IN) - A fistful of cash was taken from a purse left inside a motor vehicle in the Michigan City area.
According to La Porte County Police, a 21-year-old woman placed her purse on the floorboard of her car and covered it with a sweatshirt. She then left the vehicle to visit a friend.
Two days later, a man living nearby on Lincoln Road discovered the purse on his property underneath a bush scattered on the ground. The thief made off with the $200 that was inside the bag.
Police said a driver’s license led to the identity of the victim, who had already canceled her credit cards when officers informed her the purse had been found.
