BUTLER COUNTY, Pa. —
Police are investigating nearly a dozen car burglaries in the past few months at Moraine State Park. Authorities said valuables have been stolen from the cars of about a dozen victims at the park. One woman told Channel 11's Amy Marcinkiewicz that she was at the Butler County park when her purse and wallet were stolen from her car while she was jogging. "I came back from a jog and my window was smashed. My purse was gone. There were at least six other cars like mine," the woman said. The victim said her debit card, checkbook and house keys were inside her purse. "These guys took my identity. They took everything and they're still out there," the victim said. According to the victim, within a few days more than $11,000 was withdrawn from her bank account. Justin French, a Moraine State Park ranger, said the burglaries have been going on for a few months. "Because of all of this, we have stepped up patrols and added people. We're trying to make sure everyone is safe," French said. Park rangers are urging everyone to leave valuables in the trunk, or at home altogether.
