Purse Theft at Dave’s Market: The Smithfield Police are attempting to identify these three subjects for the theft of a purse from a shopping cart at Dave’s Marketplace on March 4, 2016. This was a well-coordinated theft in which the suspects entered the store separately, then converged on the victim simultaneously. The male in the Fedora hat distracted the female victim, while the other two passed by and stole the purse. The suspects went immediately to Target and used the credit cards. No vehicle was seen.
Anyone with information on these suspects is asked to contact Det. Sgt. Gregg Catlow at (401) 233-1036.
