When she returned to her vehicle at 5 p.m., she noticed her driver’s side door was unlocked. The woman was unsure if she had remembered to lock the door when she parked.

    When she tried to exit the garage, she noticed her permit had been stolen.

    The woman told an officer the thief might have gotten into her car through the back window, as the zipper that secured the window was broken, and then opened the driver’s side door to exit the vehicle.
