Car Burglar Makes Off with Handicapped Placard

What some people won't do to park close!

Some people will do anything for a good parking space.

An 88-year-old Fords homeowner called with a report of a burglary and theft to her 2004 Chevy Malibu. The lady had parked her car outside her Heritage Lane home, only to discover that persons unknown had absconded with her handicapped parking placard.

The placard enables the user to park their car in a handicapped parking space, always much closer to stores and businesses, and avoid a $250 fine.

The police officer thought the woman might just have mislaid the placard, but the victim was insistant the coveted parking placard was indeed stolen. There was no sign of forced entry to the vehicle, police said.

The lady said she had last seen it on June 11, and she was positive she hadn't lost it. Unfortunately, the woman didn't have the wallet ID that goes along with the placard, so police couldn't look up the number for the stolen item.

Police advised the lady to come to the Police Department where they could help her obtain a new placard.
