3153 Maple Grove Rd. (Kwik Trip)


     There has been a spike in similar theft cases taking place at gas stations and grocery store parking lots.
    The trend continued this past Saturday afternoon as a 43-year-old Madison woman was victimized while filling her tank at Kwik Trip, 3153 Maple Grove Rd.
     She saw a red Cadillac SUV pull up to the pump next to the one she was using. It was gone a minute or two later. Someone must have gotten out of it, because when the victim opened her car, her laptop and purse were gone.
    The MPD recommends motorists consider locking their vehicles while at gas pumps, and/or keeping purses with them at gas stations, and in grocery store parking lots.
