WP detectives seeking tips in new burglaries

March 10, 2014


West Point Police Department investigators don’t catch a break. Investigators are following up leads on several burglary cases dating back to Feb. 24.
At about 9:30 a.m. Feb. 24, WPPD officers were dispatched to the 700 block of Grove Street in reference to a possible auto burglary.
The owner of the vehicle, according to West Point Chief of Investigations Albert Lee, reported her wallet had been stolen.
According to the incident report, the car owner told police a purple wallet had been in the vehicle’s center console. In the wallet, she told police, was her personal identification, “personal items” and an undetermined amount of cash.
Lee said the vehicle owner left the car doors unlocked, thus there was no forced entry into the vehicle.
The trend continued into March, Lee said. About 4:30 p.m. March 2, West Point police officers were dispatched to the 600 block of Grove Street after calls went out regarding a possible auto burglary.
Lee said the vehicle owner, upon walking outside of her residence, noticed clothing, which was originally inside her vehicle, scattered on the ground.
The owner reported to police her purse had been stolen. Inside the purse, she said, was not only her personal identification, but also “assorted papers” and an undetermined amount of cash.
