Police are investigating a number of thefts this week ranging from debit card fraud on Rose Glenn Lane to a “smash and grab” larceny from a vehicle parked at the River Run Tennis Center. Officers responded to the country club at around 8pm on Sunday after a suspect allegedly driving a silver 2010 Chevrolet Malibu sedan with tinted windows and a Tennessee license plate smashed the window of an Infiniti G37 and stole a Coach purse valued at $200 and a Blackberry smartphone from inside.
