It didn't take a "Slim Jim", screwdriver or even a hammer to break into a vehicle in Lower Macungie Township recently to snatch it away from its owner.
Instead, this motor vehicle theft was more likely of the grab-and-go variety.
The vehicle wasn't one that would be licensed for the road, but instead was a pink and purple Barbie Power Wheels Jeep that was intended for a child, according to state police at Fogelsville. The battery-powered toy that a child can ride was taken between 3:15 and 7 p.m. Nov. 8 from the home at 5601 Lower Macungie Road.
No value was provided, but an online search shows new similar vehicles costing in excess of $200.
