Smash And Grab From Boca's Racquet Center

BOCA RATON, FL ( — In what is becoming a frequent crime of convenience throughout the area, a woman reportedly had her credit cards stolen after leaving her purse on the front seat of her car while she played tennis at the Racquet Center on St. Andrew's Blvd.

This facility is run by the City of Boca Raton.

According to police, it happened in broad daylight — between 9:30 and 11 in the morning. Someone smashed out the victim's front passenger window and stole the purse which was on the floor of the car.

The credit cards were used at 11:14 in the morning at an unknown Chevron station.

This is almost identical to a theft reported a few weeks ago at Get Ready Set Grow Academy on Jog Road in Delray Beach. In that smash and grab, an unknown person waited for a woman to take her toddler into the school — in a gated parking lot — to smash out the front passenger window and steal her purse. Those credit cards were also used minutes later at a nearby gas station.

Police encourage you to take your valuables with you — especially credit cards and drivers license. Having both gives a thief almost complete access to your life.
