Bismarck police investigated numerous thefts and vandalism cases since last week.
Many of the thefts involved items taken from vehicles, Lt. Gary Malo said.
- Someone broke a driver’s side window on the 300 block of Central Avenue between 8 a.m. Wednesday and 7 a.m. Thursday.
- A man locked his wallet in an executive locker at the YMCA between 11 a.m. and 11:45 a.m. Friday. When he returned, the door was still locked but had been accessed through the hinge side, and the wallet was gone. Malo said numerous reports of thefts at the YMCA are under investigation.
- A woman parked at the VFW Arena from 6:30 p.m. to 6:45 p.m. Saturday noticed a purse and a brown leather jacket missing from her vehicle, which she believed was locked. The purse was worth $55 and the jacket worth $50.
- Someone stole some recently purchased items from a vehicle parked at the north Wal-Mart, 1400 Skyline Boulevard, between 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. Saturday. Malo said the victims in the case left their pickup unlocked while they shopped in Wal-Mart and later realized some fishing equipment and clothing they had purchased earlier at other stores had been stolen. Some clothes were returned for cash at a Bismarck store, and police are investigating, Malo said.
- A rear window was broken on a vehicle parked on the 300 block of South Fifth Street between 8 p.m. Saturday and midnight Sunday. A laptop was stolen, along with a purse containing a wallet with credit cards and cash. One of the credit cards was used at two gas stations in Mandan, and police are investigating, Malo said.
