Woman Out Over $1,000 in Latest Rochester Dog Park Theft
Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News)- The Olmsted County Sheriff’s Office is investigating another theft reported at a Rochester dog park.
Captain Tim Parkin said a deputy responded to the North Dog Park in the 6200 block of West River Rd. on the report of a theft around 5 p.m. Sunday. Parkin said it’s the third theft reported at the park in as many weeks.
The deputy met a woman at the park who reported her purse was taken from her unlocked vehicle. She said the purse and its contents are worth an estimated $1,400. So far no arrests have been made.
The Olmsted County Sheriff’s Office is still investigating two other thefts reported at the same dog park earlier this month. In that case a thief made off with items left in plain sight inside of empty vehicles.
One of the vehicles was locked and the other was not. Parkin again is urging the public to lock their vehicles and not leave valuable items left in empty vehicles in plain view.
