Cars burglarized at Newtown Park



JOHNS CREEK, Ga. — Police received two reports of damaged cars and missing purses at Newtown Park on Sept. 17.

Almost $1,000 worth of items was stolen from one of the women’s purse Sept. 17 after she left the purse in her car to go for a walk.

The woman had parked her silver Hyundai Genesis shortly after noon in front of the parking lot at Newtown Park to meet with her friends. After deciding to go for a walk with them, she left her purse hidden and covered up in her back seat. She locked the door before leaving.

When the woman returned, however, she saw that the rear window of her car had been smashed and her purse was missing. Among the items missing was an iPhone, two pairs of glasses, house keys and $100 cash.

A similar incident occurred within the same hour when another woman went to walk her dog at Newtown Park. Her purse was also covered in the back seat when she left, and the car window was destroyed when she returned.
