LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -
Authorities released photos of a person of interest in connection to a number of vehicle break-ins at a northwest Las Vegas YMCA center.
According to Las Vegas deputy city marshals, three car burglaries took place on Aug. 7 and 8 at the Durango Hills YMCA center at 3521 N. Durango Dr., near West Gowan Road.
Purses were taken and credit cards were used for multiple unauthorized transactions stemming from the crimes, city officials said.
Karen Brown said she fell victim last week. "5 o'clock, I came over to get (my son) to a swim lesson. I came back around 6, and my glass was broken," she said, pointing to her car window.
"I was so confident to just leave my stuff there for an hour and come back, and it was gone," Brown added.
Deputy city marshals described the person of interest as a white woman, 30 to 40 years old, between 5'7" and 5'10" tall and 180 to 200 pounds.
"Usually in these cases, they'll run to a convenience store and run the credit cards, make sure they haven't been canceled yet," said Sgt. Mark McCoy. "That seemed to be what happened in this case, and we were able to get a video copy of them using the credit card," he said.
