CUMMING, Ga. — A woman’s purse was stolen from her truck during her birthday party. The thief did leave the birthday gifts behind, according to a Forsyth County Sheriff’s incident report.

At 2:25 p.m. April 2, a woman told deputies she was attending her birthday party at the Polo Fields Clubhouse, 7000 Lancaster Circle, and went to put her gifts in her Ford F-150. She said she returned to the party and stayed at the clubhouse until 5:30 p.m.

When she returned home and unloaded her truck, she noticed her purse was missing.

By 8 p.m., the thief had used the victim’s credit cards at 15 locations, totaling $513.42, including renting movies from a Redbox DVD kiosk.

A clubhouse attendant said they would check video surveillance for suspicious activity.
