VIDEO: “As part of an ongoing investigation into thefts at supermarkets in Toms River, we are asking the public’s help in identifying a suspect that has been captured in video surveillance stealing a 65 year old woman’s purse from her shopping cart,” Toms River Police said today.
The video provided is from an incident that occurred in the Shoprite located at #2 Route 37 West in the fall of 2013.
“Although this footage is dated, it is the best image so far that we have captured of this suspect.”
According to police spokesman Ralph Stocco, “the investigation leads us to believe that she continues to prey on elderly females and hope this footage aids in her apprehension.” This suspect may be involved in more recent thefts that have not been caught on camera.
She leaves the store and appears to possibly get into a dark red colored older, boxy style Ford Mustang.
She is wearing a distinctive shirt that says “Attitude Served Daily”. She is approximately 5’ 5” tall, in her 20’s and has dark hair.
Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to contact Detective Roger Hull at 732-349-0150 extension 1291. [TLS]
