POLICE SEEK TO ID WALLET SNATCHERS

The West Chester Police Department is attempting to identify people involved in stealing wallets from purses.

On February 19, a group of people were working together at the Voice of America Shopping Center to steal wallets from purses left in shopping carts. The female would distract victims while a male got into the purses. Stolen credit cards from the wallets were then used to make purchases by the suspects at local retail stores.

Anyone who may know the identities of either subject should contact Crimestoppers at (513) 352-3040 or the West Chester Police Department at (513) 777-2231.
