Purse Stolen From Car While Driver Bought Italian Ice

On July 16, 2011 at 8:20 p.m., a Linden resident reported an unknown actor stole her black leather purse from her vehicle which was parked on West Clay Avenue near Faitoute Avenue.

The victim stated that she parked the vehicle – a 2003 Buick Le Sabre – at 7:30 p.m. and then walked across the street to purchase ice from Mimi’s Homemade Italian Ice store. When she returned to the vehicle, the purse was missing.

Inside the purse was a wallet containing $200 cash, three (3) credit cards – American Express, Macy’s, and Lord & Taylor – and several personal items such as the victim’s drivers license.
