The break-in of a Lincoln MKX, a luxury SUV, was included in a Batesville police report that indicated three vehicles were burglarized Saturday night during the Bill Lipscomb Memorial Rodeo.

Taken from the Lincoln SUV were a Renasant Bank debit card and a checkbook, a drivers license, and a Belk credit card among other items.

BPD Lt. John Miller wrote in his report that the burglary victim was on the phone canceling a bank account “when she learned the debit card had already been used at the Batesville Walmart.”
Thieves broke the driver’s side window to gain entry into the Lincoln.

BPD Patrolman Greg Jones took a separate report that described the break-in of a Honda Odyssey. An E-reader, a set of keys and a makeup bag were taken from the vehicle.

A passenger’s side window was broken on the Honda.

Jones also took a report that thieves had broken a passenger side window on a Ford Escape. Taken from the automobile were a purse, a debit card and three pills of antibiotics.
