Thefts from cars investigated by police

Birmingham police are investigating a pair of potentially connected thefts discovered on the evening of Tuesday, September 14, near Forest Avenue and Woodward.


Police received a call about 9:42 p.m. from a woman in the 700 block of Forest Avenue who said she returned to her car to find the rear windshield broken.


Witnesses told police that a light-skinned man wearing a medical face mask, a white T-shirt and dark cargo shorts was observed peeking inside the vehicle before throwing an object at the rear window and breaking it. The man then entered through the window and exited moments later before leaving on a bicycle.


Police responded to the same area about 10:20 a.m. for another broken window of a vehicle where several items were stolen, including a computer. The loss was estimated at $1,570.


Police also are investigating other unrelated vehicle break-ins that occurred on Sunday, September 19.


Officers responded about 2:29 p.m. to the 700 block of Maple, where a woman left her vehicle parked overnight and found some car windows broken. She told officers no items were missing from the vehicle.


Another victim reported a smashed window of her vehicle about 7:11 p.m. in the 600 block of Ann Street. The victim left her vehicle there about 6 a.m. that day and returned to find the rear window shattered. No items were missing.
