FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — A thief broke into a car at a gym’s parking lot and took a $400 purse, according to a Forsyth County Sheriff’s incident report.

A woman told deputies she parked her 2013 Kia Soul at Atlanta Fitness, 6045 Post Road, about 7 p.m. Aug. 12.

When she came back two hours later, she said the passenger front window was smashed.

The thief took her $400 purse, which had her wallet and credit cards inside.

While she completed her statement with deputies, the woman received a call from her father. He said someone had used one of her stolen credit cards at a gas station off Atlanta Highway and Post Road.

Deputies went to the gas station and watched video footage at the time the card was used.

Deputies saw a man in a dark colored Nissan Titan pump $60 in gas and head northbound on Atlanta Highway.

On Aug. 11, deputies found another car had its back window smashed while parked at Atlanta Fitness, 3775 Windermere Parkway in south Forsyth County.

The back window of a 2011 Honda Pilot was smashed. Deputies examined the car and said nothing seemed to be missing; the woman’s purse was still sitting on the center console between the front seats.
