"Our branch manager said obviously someone saw the purse, broke the window and then took the purse," Niebur said. "Charges were made to the lady's credit card that day, according to police. This was especially unusual for something like that to happen at that time of day. I agree with police that people should not leave a purse or wallet visible in a car. "

Niebur closed by saying he hoped the Edwardsville Police Department would apprehend the suspects soon and anyone who knows the suspects immediately contact authorities.

Anyone with information regarding this investigation is urged to contact the Edwardsville Police Department at (618) 656-2131 and request to speak with the on-duty shift commander.
