WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - The Purdue Police Department says a recent car theft and destruction of personal property prompted the release of an image of a man who is wanted for questioning in the case.
According to Purdue University police, a car was reported as stolen from the Marsteller Street Parking Garage's first-floor levels on March 30.
Police searched the garage and found the car on the top floor with damage to the front of the vehicle (indicating it had struck a concrete wall). The contents inside the car had been ransacked, according to Purdue police Lt. Fred Davis.
Officers later found the car owner's purse and items from it scattered around the garage's first level, with several items missing from the purse.
