Teachers' cars vandalized, purses stolen at Mary S. Young Park

Two Lake Oswego elementary school teachers were among six victims who had their cars vandalized and purses stolen Sunday at Mary S. Young Park in West Linn, and now they're asking for the public's help in tracking down the thieves.

The teachers say that the damage to their vehicles, the loss of the contents of their purses and the need to update and replace credit cards and personal identification is likely to cost each of them thousands of dollars.

They're hoping someone who was at the park between noon and 12:30 p.m. on Sunday took photos that caught the parking lot in the background. Those photos may offer clues to the identity of the thief, the teachers say.

Anyone with questions, information or relevant photos are asked to contact the teachers by email at findourpurses@gmail.com. The West Linn Police Department also is looking for information about the incidents; contact police by phone at 503-655-6214.
