Parsippany NJ police are investigating three car break-ins which were reported on the same day.
According to authorities, all of the thefts occurred at local daycare facilities in Parsippany, New Jersey.
The first incident occurred at the Learning Experience on Parsippany Boulevard. A 33-year-old Fredon NJ woman contacted police to notify them that her 2011 Audi had been broken into. The thieves reportedly took the victim’s Coach purse, which was lying on the front seat of the vehicle.
At the time of the theft, the victim was dropping off her son at the daycare center. Unfortunately, the woman was in a rush and did not lock her car doors.
The second incident occurred just a few minutes later at the Bright Horizons on Dryden Way. A 37-year old woman from Denville NJ reported that the driver’s side window on her vehicle had been smashed. Once the thieves got access to the car, they reportedly stole the victim’s Coach purse.
The theft happened while the victim was escorting her children inside the daycare facility. The victim’s car was a 2013 Subaru.
The third incident occurred later that night. Parsippany police received a call from a 39-year-old Morris Plains NJ woman. The victim told police that her car had been burglarized while she dropped off her son at the Apple Montessori daycare center located on Simpson Avenue.
The thieves reportedly took the victim’s purse, iPad, and Kindle Fire from the vehicle.
