Police Wednesday sought the public’s help to identify the person who broke into and stole cash from a parked car in Glendale.

The suspect driving a black SUV about 9:10 a.m. Saturday followed a victim who had withdrawn cash from a bank ATM and, once the victim parked and left their car in the 200 block of South Central Avenue, broke a window and retrieved the money before fleeing the scene, said Glendale Police Department Sgt. Christian Hauptmann.

“The MO is consistent with numerous similar, recent ‘jugging’ or bank-follow incidents involving suspects in rental cars following victims from bank parking lots,” he said.

The suspect vehicle was described as a late model black Toyota 4Runner with dark tinted windows, no front license plate and possibly an Oregon rear license plate.

Anyone with information on the robbery was asked to call the Glendale Police Department at 818-548-4911. Anonymous tips can be called in to Crime Stoppers at 800-222-8477 or submitted online at lacrimestoppers.org.
