Lower Mac Thieves Love Unlocked Cars

A wallet alone was not good enough for one Lower Mac car burglar.

Was the wallet just a tease to a petty thief looking for more or was that petty thief just a bit snobbish?

Either way, after entering the unlocked vehicle of Lorraine Ziello in her driveway at 2920 Sequoia Drive on June 15, that thief tossed the wallet on the car's floor and left without taking anything, according to police.

The attempted theft from a motor vehicle was reported at 9:15 p.m. to . Presumably finding nothing of interest, the thief left.

Whether similar acts within a few days were done by the same person or someone else, the following thefts from motor vehicles also were reported:

-- Robert Kreiger of the 7000 block of Tuscany Drive said a GPS was taken from his unlocked vehicle between 7 p.m. June 18 and 5 p.m. June 19, police said; no value was given.

-- David Michael Makuta of 7270 Woodbine Lane said someone entered his unlocked vehicle between 11 p.m. June 17 and 4:30 a.m. June 18, police said; $10 in change was taken.

-- Someone upped the ante by breaking the window of a locked vehicle at 6970 Tuscany Drive; the car owned by an unidentified man was entered between 10 p.m. June 18 and 4:30 a.m. June 19, police said; no description was given of items taken or value.

- Just had special collection of C.D.'s stolen from my car. Why don't these people learn that you just can't take things from other peoples' cars? Many people just cruise neighborhoods, usually early a.m. hours, HOWEVER another big time is early Sunday morning - 7-8 a.m. Suspect? Get license & car description, call police.
