Theft from a vehicle
On Friday, Dec. 29, Elizabeth Harris, 27, of Manhattan, N.Y., reported that she went to Topstone Park for a walk with some friends at 4:15 p.m. Upon returning to the vehicle — a 2010 Toyota sedan — at 5:15 p.m., she discovered that someone smashed out a window of the car, and went through her purse.
At the time of the report, it appeared that nothing was missing from the purse. However, there were some missing pay stubs that were located in the center console. There are no suspects at this time. Police are asking that items not be left out in the open inside vehicles parked at the park. It is believed that the Danbury and Topstone Park incidents are related.
