Thefts from vehicles pick up again
Imagine it is 7:25 a.m. on a Tuesday morning and you need a cup of coffee. You stop at the Holiday Station at 15th and Vermillion Streets and park on the north side of the building.
You jump out, run inside, grab your coffee, pay and then return to your car, only to find that while you were away someone had smashed out a window of your vehicle and stolen your purse.
That's exactly what happened to a Hastings woman on Jan. 31.
