On January 29, police say that at least seven cars had their windows smashed and valuables swiped in the parking lots of two fitness clubs in the city. Stolen items include purses, checkbooks and credit cards.
Within two weeks, Mandeville police say someone tried to cash some of the stolen checks at Hancock Whitney bank in Harahan. Police released two photos of the suspect as well as of the car she is accused of driving.
Police say the woman was able to cash two check but was rejected when she tried to cash a third.
