Police seek smash-and-grab info

From Local Sources

FERDINAND — The Ferdinand Police Department is asking for the public’s help as officers investigate thefts from vehicles that were vandalized in the Ferdinand Branch Library parking lot.

The incident is thought to have occurred around noon Friday at the library lot near the Tri-County YMCA on East 16th Street, according to police.

Two SUV-type vehicles — one silver, the other red — were both vandalized while parked in the library lot. Police say one or more individuals smashed the SUVs’ windows and removed the owners’ personal effects that included a purse and/or wallet containing personal information. Also taken was a pair of high-heeled shoes.

Anyone who was in the area between noon and 12:30 p.m. and who may have noticed anything suspicious is asked to contact Ferdinand police by calling the county dispatch non-emergency number: 812-482-9111.

Police are withholding the victims’ names until further information is obtained and for their privacy.
