According to Lower Providence Police, a resident, along the 1000 block of Doris Drive in the Collegeville section of the township, reported that between $240 and $260 in cash was stolen from his vehicle.
The incident was reported on Dec. 31, 2012. The resident told police that the previous night the vehicle was parked in his driveway, and was unsure if it was locked. The resident adds that his wife’s vehicle was parked along side his own, but was not disturbed. The resident said that both he and his wife were home all night, but heard nothing.
By 9:45 a.m. the following morning, the resident discovered that his vehicle had been entered and ransacked, with the contents of its center compartment all over the front seats. The resident told police that assorted quarters and a gift card were left behind, but the above-mentioned cash was found in its hiding place, and were the only items reported stolen.
The resident further told police that the vehicle also contained assorted groceries in the trunk, which could have been accessed through the trunk release without the ignition key, however no items were reported taken.
Lower Providence Police report that the vehicle’s doors and windows did not show signs of forced entry.
