On 01/19/2018 at approximately 12:00 pm two middle aged male blacks entered the Panera Bread located at 8420 Winton Road and the older man with black rimmed glasses sat directly behind our victim. As the pictured subject sat there, he took his jacket off and was able to cover the victim’s purse up with the jacket. While the purse was covered up the pictured male black placed his hand under the jacket and was able to rifle through the victim’s purse stealing her wallet. Then the pictured subject went to Target Stores in Blue Ash, Cincinnati, and Newport and charged approximately $9,060.42 to the victim’s credit cards. The suspect would purchase a small item and then purchase numerous gift cards in the amount of $200.00 each.
