The other evening around 7:00 pm at the Marina a vehicle suffered a smashed window and a purse was stolen from the owner.

Police were notified and have started an investigation.

Sources indicate that the Marina has become a hot spot for car hoppers to strike the area, victimizing otherwise lawabiding citizens.

Witnesses in the area say that a male suspect approached the vehicle not long after the owner headed off for a stroll with their two dogs. The suspect wrapped a rock in a flannel shirt and smashed it into the window, destroying the window and gaining access to the SUV.
