Another Purse Taken in Church Parking Lot

| July 17, 2011

A purse was taken from a vehicle in the parking lot of the Lutheran Church of the Redeemer on West Maple Road Wednesday. According to police reports, a woman left her car unlocked in the church parking lot around 1 p.m. to pick up her child from day care. When she returned five minutes later, her purse was gone. The woman told police the purse contained credit cards, personal ID and keys.

The incident is similar to two thefts that occured in the same parking lot in late 2010. Birmingham Police Cmdr. Terry Kiernan said police doesn't believe the three incidents are related.

"There is a bus stop right in front of the three churches (First United Methodist Church and First Presbyterian Church) over there, so there are some transients in the area because of it," Kiernan said.
