A would-be thief was foiled early Tuesday morning when he discovered a resident used their #9pmRoutine to prevent entry into their vehicles. While reviewing home surveillance footage the resident discovered the unknown subject returned an hour after his 1st attempt & again failed to gain entry into the locked vehicles.
While in Walgreens Wednesday night, a man concealed approximately $90 worth of merchandise on his person. When confronted by store security, the man fled the store & left the area in a white Kia Sorento.
A business in the central business district reported approximately $500 worth of merchandise was stolen Thursday morning. The merchandise had been set outside of the business for a customer to pick up & was stolen within a 20-minute time frame. The area is under video surveillance & investigation is ongoing.
Thursday afternoon a resident in the DeMun area discovered items were missing from the center console of his vehicle. At the time of discovery, the vehicle was unlocked & there were no signs of forced entry. The resident last entered the vehicle 2 days before & was unsure if he had locked the doors behind him.
Friday morning, a passerby reported discovering graffiti on the walls of the Clayshire pedestrian walkway tunnel.
Lastly, later Friday, a resident reported someone made 2 fraudulent online purchases using his credit card information. The purchased items were delivered to an address in St. Louis City which he is not affiliated with. The credit card never left his possession & he believes the card information may have been compromised in February at a Brentwood business.
