Entering Auto (02/09/18 @ approximately 1040 hours in Zone 3)

The Cobb County Police Department’s Criminal Investigations Unit of Precinct Two is investigating an entering auto theft that occurred at 2804 Paces Ferry Road in Atlanta (Vinings), GA.

Per investigators, the victim was pumping gas at the QuikTrip gas station when a second vehicle pulled alongside her vehicle. What appears to be a male suspect exits the rear of the second vehicle and enters the victim’s vehicle on the passenger side and steals the victim’s purse. The suspect then quickly gets back into the suspect vehicle and the vehicle leaves the parking lot. The victim was unaware of the second vehicle and never saw the suspect enter her vehicle.

The suspect was wearing dark clothing, what appear to be gloves, and a dark hoodie.

This incident may be tied to several “slider” thefts in the metro-Atlanta area. Our detectives are asking for any information which might help in the identification and apprehension of the individuals involved.
