Local Side Mirror Thief

Marple Township police report that a suspect has been ripping off sideview mirrors in Broomall. With all these broken mirrors, the thief or thieves will probably suffer many years of bad luck.

Sometime between April 12 and 13, police received two separate calls in regards to stolen sideview mirrors. Both cars had been parked off of Evergreen Avenue in Broomall.

The first incident happened overnight, as the victim reports hearing loud noises around 2:30 a.m. She woke up and looked out the window to see two young teenagers running across the street. The 2005 Ford Focus, which was safely parked in the driveway, was missing both mirrors in the morning.

Another victim reports that her mirrors were stolen sometime after 7:30 p.m. on April 12. The next day she reported that her 2002 Honda Accord was missing both sideview mirrors.

This common theft is an annoyance to many car owners. Keep your vehicle parked where you can see it and perhaps install a security system so thieves don’t have the opportunity to snatch everything from the inside of your car too.
