Police Investigating Purse Thefts in Johnson County

The Johnson County Sheriff's Department is investigating a string of purse thefts in that county.

Authorities investigated three instances Wednesday morning of purses being stolen from vehicles. Two of the three thefts involved a vehicle window being broken to get to the purse. The other theft was the result of someone making entry into a locked garage to get inside of an unlocked vehicle.

Police are looking for a red or maroon minivan, possibly a Honda Pilot or Odyssey, driven by a white female with shoulder-length blond hair. Authorities expect to have surveillance footage to better identify the suspect and her vehicle soon.

Anyone with information on these cases is asked to contact the Johnson County Sheriff's Department.
