Severna Avenue & Colfax Avenue

Just before 2 p.m. on Wednesday, August 14, 2013, Springfield Police responded to a call on Severna Avenue.  Sources indicate there was a report of a theft of a high-end brown purse, possibly a Louis Vuitton.  A search of the area revealed a black hoodie behind a residence on Colfax Road.  This led to Springfield Police requesting County K-9 assistance to track the lead.  Millburn officials were notified because of the possibility that the trail may lead across the border behind Forest Drive near Millburn High School.

The Union County Sherrif’s officers arrived on scene around 2:08 p.m. and a K-9 patrol began shortly after with Springfield officers accompanying them.

UPDATE:  Reports indicate the suspect was identified as a young male from the neighborhood and may be linked to other local vehicle break-ins.  A name has not been released.  Springfield Police have filed this as Case #2013-8680.
