Thieves are targeting gym locker rooms around the St. Louis area and stealing wallets, credit cards, and even taking keys so they can steal cars.

Just before Thanksgiving, thieves stole Pranay Agrawal’s keys from a locker at a gym in Creve Coeur. Someone then stole his car. The thieves also took his wallet and credit cards and used them at a gas station and several stores.

Police say several such thefts have happened recently. On November 4, thieves stole a car from outside a health club in Arnold. The same thing happened in South County on November 25 and in Brentwood on November 30.

In Arnold, thieves took keys from coats and lockers before rifling through customers’ cars.

In every case, the gym lockers were unlocked.

Police in Arnold and Brentwood say they have leads but no arrests.
