Police are searching for suspects they say stole a woman's purse from a car while she was paying respects at a family member's grave.
The incident happened May 18th at Fred Hunters along N 72 Ave. Police say an unknown person smashed the window to the family’s vehicle and stole a purse from the front passenger seat (pictured below). As the family was reporting the incident to the police, they received an alert from their banking system that their cards were used at a Foot Locker in Dania Pointe 20 minutes away. Detectives were able to retrieve video surveillance from Foot Locker, which depicted the following subjects who may be responsible for this crime. A black male, heavy set with long dreadlocks tucked into a hair wrap was with a thin black female with a quarter sleeve tattoo on her right arm. More than $1,500.00 was stolen.
In addition, the stolen purse contained sentimental items from their loved one, which are irreplaceable.
