Purse stolen at daycare parking lot
MIAMI (WSVN) -- A customer at a South Florida daycare had her purse stolen Monday, the latest in a string of thefts for the facility.
Sarah Barber Bazail said she put her purse inside her gym bag in the front seat of her car for only a couple minutes. "The part that scares me is that somebody's sitting there watching our every move because it happens so fast, while people are outside," she said.
The victim left her purse unattended while she walked her son to the playground around 9 a.m. at Morningside Montessori School, along Biscayne Boulevard at 50th Street, in Miami. When she returned to her vehicle, she found her back passenger side window smashed in.
Barber Bazail said the same thing happened to her mother last week, as well as several other parents. "[There is] no concern for anybody catching them, and that the children are 50 feet away."
Police said only two burglaries have been reported at the school. The prior one took place March 22.
Morningside Montessori administrators are sending out letters to parents reminding them to refrain from leaving valuables inside their cars.
If you have any information on this theft, call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a reward.
