The victim told police that he parked his vehicle on the second floor of Garage 44 at 10:30 a.m., and upon returning at 3 p.m., he discovered his parking decal was stolen. He said that he had locked his vehicle but noticed that a small corner of the rubber at the bottom of a window appeared to be loose. Despite the vehicle being locked when he returned to it, the permit was gone. When the victim was asked whether anything else had been stolen, he responded no. Due to a lack of suspect information, UPD recommended that patrol efforts be suspended.
