Caught on Camera: Purse Stolen From Car at Newport Preschool

"I'm pretty aware of my surroundings, so just to look back and think that I missed that, it really is aggravating."

"Everybody's so busy during the morning hours, trying to get our kids in and out," the owner says.

In the video, cars can be seen cycling through the parking lot, but one gray SUV appears to stick around.

We spoke to a woman on Monday night who had the same thing happen to her outside a west Little Rock church.

The victim in the Newport theft case says the North Little Rock Police Department contacted her and said someone dressed in a wig tried using her debit card at a NLR bank.

NEWPORT, AR (KAIT) – A vehicle break-in in Newport could be connected to other break-ins around the area.
