MADISON, Wis. -

Madison police are looking for a vehicle that was seen in a cemetery around the time two women had their wallets stolen, according to a release.

Officials are looking for an older gold Cadillac that was seen in the area when two women who were visiting a family grave site at Forest Hill Cemetery had their wallets stolen out of their vehicle.

The women told police they left their car unlocked when they went to pay their respects at the grave site at 3601 Speedway Road around 4:45 p.m. on April 26.

They said they had to walk over a hill to get to the grave site, and could not see who might have gone into their car, police said.

According to a release, one of their credit cards was used later at a University Avenue gas station.

  • PHOTOS: Madison store helps collect hundreds of Teddy bears for police

    MADISON, Wis.--A west Madison store is part of an effort to collect hundreds of stuffed animals to donate to six police departments in Southern Wisconsin.

    Todd Merryfield, owner of The Learning Shop at 714 S. Gammon Road, said the store is collecting the bears for officers who use them to help comfort children with whom police come in contact.

    "This is a great way to support what (police) do," Merryfield said. "Those are the kids that need something like this to reassure them, calm them down, and let them know that things are all right."

    Nearly 500 plush animals were donated Tuesday, a Learning Shop spokeswoman said. The Madison store's effort is part of a larger initiative through the Bears for Humanity organization.
