Police said that on the afternoon of Oct. 15, an Amesbury woman reported her pocketbook was missing from her car, which was parked outside Latitudes Sports Club, 3 Ferry St., Bradford. The woman told police she’d placed her pocketbook on the floor behind the passenger seat, covered it with a sweatshirt then went inside the gym. She said she placed her car keys in a basket by the front lobby, which is near the front door to the gym.
After finishing at the gym at 5:30 p.m., she got her keys and drove back to her home in Amesbury, where she discovered her pocketbook containing her driver’s license, $100 cash and her “Sovereign” debit card was missing. After contacting her bank, she was told a $502 withdrawal was made at a Sovereign Bank in Methuen, and $502 was withdrawn from a Bank of America ATM in Haverhill. The woman subsequently cancelled her debit card, the report said.
