GREENWOOD, Ind. – Thieves in the Greenwood area kept themselves busy over the weekend.
“They broke in, stole my wallet which was on the console and they went through everything in the truck,” says victim Chris Vance.
Just in the last few days, several cars have been broken into in the Wakefield subdivision.
“Everything was out of my glove box and was thrown all over my car including papers and registration. All of my CDs were stolen, too,” says another victim Charity Shultz.
At least five cars were broken into on one stretch of Gainesway Drive and the victims only live a few houses away from one another. Residents we spoke with off camera say their cars were broken into as well, but they have not yet filed police reports. The criminals got away with thousands of dollars in cash.
“They stole probably around $1,500 from my wallet,” says another Wakefield resident.
The suspects also stole purses, credit cards, and IDs.
“They tried to charge several hundred dollars to my bank card, credit card, and work card,” says Vance.
The Johnson County Sheriff’s Office said two men were caught on camera using those stolen cards at a Speedway gas station located less than one mile from where they were taken.
“We are fortunate enough to get a couple surveillance photographs of these two suspects that went into the store as well as the vehicle that was used. We know that there was a third person in the car,” says Johnson County Sheriff Doug Cox.
Another break in the case came when police arrested a woman who may also be connected to the thefts. Officers found her walking around the Wakefield subdivision Sunday morning and say she had stolen a set of jumper cables. The juvenile originally provided investigators with a fake name. Investigators later learned she was wanted on an outstanding warrant in Indianapolis and was also a runaway.
“She is associated with some stolen property,” says Cox.
