The incident happened in August at St. Jane Frances de Chantel Catholic Church in Bethesda.
Officers say the break-in happened in the afternoon while the car’s owner was attending church. The thieves stole a purse from the car which contained several credit cards.
Within hours of the theft, the suspects had produced a fake Maryland driver’s license, purchased a three-month-old Yorkshire Terrier, and went on a shopping spree at Nordstrom’s.
