A man from New Hope reported having thousands of dollars in property stolen from a vehicle in Upper Bucks County.

While troopers only announced last week that the incident was under investigation, a press release from Pennsylvania State Police said the incident occurred on the evening of September 22.

Troopers from the Dublin station said they were called to Kimberton Whole Foods in the 4000 block of Durham Road in Nockamixon Township for a report of a theft from a vehicle.

A 61-year-old man from New Hope was at the Kimberton Whole Foods shopping when a car pulled up outside and a man got out. He then smashed the New Hope man’s car window and stole several items, state police said.

The New Hope man, who drove a 2020 Mercedes GLS450, reported that a vintage Louis Vuitton duffel bag, clothing, and heart medication were stolen from the vehicle, state police said.

According to state police, the vintage duffel bag was valued at $2,000 and the clothing was worth $50.

Troopers said the male suspect, who smashed the window and stole the items, arrived in a silver Toyota that was driven by a female accomplice. The duo then fled southbound on Durham Road.
