Thieves strike cars with bricks at St. Elizabeth

KENTON COUNTY, KY (FOX19) - Two suspects cased the St. Elizabeth parking lot areas for an hour July 11 around 11:45 a.m. before finding a brick and throwing it through one of the parked vehicle's windows, reported officials.

Police said one suspect arrived at the St. Elizabeth Hospital parking lot in a red vehicle driven by a female, initially wearing a purple t-shirt.

The male exited the red vehicle and got into the passenger side of a black Chrysler 300 rental car driven by the second suspect, according to reports.

Police said prior to breaking the window, one of the suspects entered the hospital and changed out of the t-shirt he arrived in and into the tank top that is seen in the photos.

After striking the window with a brick, one of the suspects then stole the owner's purse left inside the vehicle and fled the area, said reports.

Police said the break-in caused over $2,000 worth of damage to the vehicle.

Within 10 minutes of the theft, one suspect spent over $4,000 at various retail stores in the Kenton and Boone Co. areas purchasing eight PlayStation units, said officials.

Please call Kenton County Dispatch at 859-356-3191 if you have any information or leads on the identities of these two suspects.
