— A medical bag containing $578 in cash, a stethoscope and miscellaneous IDs were taken from a pickup parked in front of an Edmond home, police said.

During the evening of Sept. 28, Edmond Police Officer Roger Shortt responded to a call regarding an auto burglary in the 100 block of Rob Lane, according to an incident report filed by Shortt.

After he arrived, he spoke to the victim, who said on Sept. 27 she was given $578 in cash from an associate, put it in her “Tinbuk2” messenger-style bag and placed it in her pickup, police said.

She recalled going to the Crest grocery store at about 1 a.m. Sept. 28, and she still had the bag when she arrived at home a few minutes later, police said. She parked the truck in her driveway with the tailgate facing the garage.

At about 11:30 a.m. on Sept. 28, the victim’s roommate noticed the glass sliding rear window on the truck’s cab was open, police said. The victim searched the cab and realized the bag containing the cash and several other items was missing.

The victim said she did not think she was followed home from Crest and she did not notice anyone suspicious in the neighborhood when she parked the truck in her driveway, police said.

Only three people, who were not identified, knew about the money, police said.
