Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- A safety reminder tonight that could prevent you from having your personal information stolen, your life turned upside-down.

Police are investigating after a someone broke into a car and stole a purse from Courts Plus parking lot in south Fargo. It's one of a handful of thefts there in the past few months..

The latest theft though was rare, in the middle of the morning in a busy parking lot with construction work going on nearby.

Lt. Joel Vettel says, "the victim did a lot of things right. Locked the vehicle, hid the belongings as best she could but at the end of the day if you have something in there that somebody is targeting, it certainly could happen and will happen if somebody is focused enough to take the risk and break in in broad daylight."
