A car was broken into Monday at Thornton Creek Elementary School at around 4 p.m., according to school principal Alison Epler.
According to an email sent out by Epler Monday evening, a mother of a student parked her car in the school's parking lot, locked it and came inside the building. When she came back out to her car, the the passenger side window had been smashed and her purse was missing from the front seat.
Novi police were called and a report was filed, the email said.
Epler asks that you contact Novi police directly at 248-348-7100 if you have any information or saw anything suspicious at school dismissal this afternoon. If you call the police station, use the following incident report number: 12-11275.
She says Novi police will patrol the parking lot regularly over the next few days, and asks parents to be on alert, lock their cars and take any valuables with them.
