While You’re Out Grabbing Lunch, They’re In Grabbing Goodies

Yesterday I wrote about the release of information. I told you about the cases where we ask for help with identifying suspects. Today, I have just that kind of request. Detectives are currently working two different investigations that are unrelated, but were committed in similar manners, and they need your help in identifying the suspects in each.

The first case made a victim out of someone who spends her day helping others. A nurse in a doctor’s office was contacted during her work day in reference to someone trying to use one of her credit cards. She quickly learned someone had removed her wallet from her purse while she was away from her desk.

The second case has several victims. The suspect or suspects entered business suites at different locations during the lunch hours. These thefts occurred between October and December of 2011. The targets of these thefts were computer laptops, wallets and other purse contents.

My message of caution would apply to both investigations. Watch for people coming or going from your business that appear out of place or are unknown to you. Be especially vigilant during the lunch hours.

Anyone with information about the identity of the people in the photos shown below is asked to call the TIPS HOTLINE at 816-474-TIPS
