WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Purdue police are looking to track down the person or people behind the use of a credit card stolen from a campus parking garage.
Police said the credit card was allegedly stolen on Sept. 20 from a parked vehicle in the Marstellar Street Parking Garage. They are asking for the public's help with identifying a man and a woman in a surveillance photo.
Captain Eric Chin said some ways to prevent thefts like this from happening include locking your vehicle and parking in a well-lit area. He said always be sure to hide your valuables.
"Remove those GPS devices, your iPhones, purses, anything that's visible. We don't want someone walking by your vehicle and notice the valuables in there and take advantage of that opportunity," said Chin.
In a release to the media, Purdue police said that West Lafayette police also reported thefts from vehicles around Sept. 20.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Purdue Police Department or the anonymous We-Tip Hotline at 1-800-78-CRIME.
