A woman learned a tough lesson about leaving her valuables in the car after her purse was stolen earlier this year by two suspects.

“It was Friday, February 9, 2019, at about 5:00 in the afternoon,” says Phoenix Police Sgt. Jamie Rothschild. “Two suspects showed-up near 33rd Avenue and Peoria (Avenue).”

They broke into a woman’s car and stole her purse. Inside was a credit card.

“That credit card was used at a couple of different stores before it was discovered,” says Rothschild.

The suspects, a man and a woman, are seen on surveillance video driving a black, 4-door Hyundai.

Rothschild recommends you make copies of the fronts and backs of credit and debit cards and keep those copies in a safe place.

That way you have quick access to the information if your cards are stolen.
