SAN ANTONIO – Crime has hit especially close to home for San Antonio Police Chief William McManus.
A car burglar broke into his SUV late Thursday night while it was parked outside his home in the Monte Vista neighborhood, just north of downtown, police said.
A preliminary report released by SAPD Friday morning says McManus’ ballistic vest was taken during the car break-in, which happened at some point between 9 p.m. and 9:15 p.m.
It says a passerby noticed someone dressed in a red hoodie inside the chief’s police department-issued 2021 Chevy Tahoe.
When that person saw the passerby’s headlights, he or she jumped out of the Tahoe, climbed into a grey car and got away.
No other information was released on the burglar or the incident.
