That was not the case when police were summoned to the same neighborhood at 7:30 a.m., when Lt. Jason Baird noted that a resident in the 900 block of Canyon Drive reported that a purse and its contents valued at $632 were stolen from an unlocked vehicle.
The next report came from the 900 block of North College Street at 10:06 a.m.
“At Morse Park, she was fishing and someone got into her vehicle and took four bottles of medicine valued at $14,” Baird said.
Police were contacted at 6:52 p.m. by a resident in the 1200 block of Circle Drive whom Baird said reported the theft of a GPS, gaming system and dental mold valued at $355 from an unlocked vehicle.
A purse and its contents valued at $522 were reported stolen at 3:03 p.m. from Love’s Travel Stop, 12009 East Missouri Highway 86.
“She was in Subway and left her purse in a booth and someone grabbed it,” Baird said. Though she has not been identified, he said video surveillance indicated the purse was grabbed by a heavy-set woman with brown hair and a mole on her face.
State charges of property damage against a 25-year-old Neosho man are pending review by the Newton County Prosecutor’s Office.
Police responded to the 700 block of West Spring Street after Baird said the subject threw a can of soup at a passing vehicle, causing $1,200 damage.
