On Sunday officers responded to a local gas station in reference to a theft report.
A woman pulled up to the pump, got out of her vehicle and went inside to pre-pay for her gas. When she returned to her vehicle she realized her purse was missing.
TAPD officers say thieves prey on situations such as this where a theft can easily be committed. Even if you are leaving your vehicle unattended for just a few minutes, please keep your vehicle locked and prevent yourself from being a victim of a crime.
