Medicine stolen during Fairview car break-ins
A string of overnight car break-ins at the Blue Lake Village Park in Fairview left an 11-year-old girl without some life-saving medicine.
At least six cars were broken into, including Nancy Quarles' van parked in her driveway. Quarles said her van was ransacked sometime between 11 p.m. Sunday and 7 a.m. Monday, April 15-16. Fairview police are investigating.
Someone stole Quarles' wallet, her camera and the medication Oxybutynin.
'When you take a medication that belongs to child, who at 11 years old has had 67 surgeries ... you are taking medication that sustains her life,' Quarles said. 'It's just not OK and that, to me, stoops to a new low.'
Quarles said her daughter needs the medication to survive.
Quarles' wallet also was stolen from her van. However, whoever took it left it in her neighbor's car parked a few doors down - after breaking into that car.
The neighbor, Jean Andrews, said she didn't have anything of value in her car, but she did find Quarles' wallet and returned it to her Monday morning.
Thieves took Quarles' debit card, her Oregon Trail card and her daughter's medical identification cards with her pictures on them. Quarles' debit card was used twice Monday morning, once at a local convenience store and another time at a fast-food restaurant in the area.
