(CMR) A brazen handbag thief is on the loose in George Town! After shoplifting from McRuss Grocery Store on Eastern a pair of alleged thieves then open a woman's jeep and took out her handbag that was in the vehicle.
The incident happened last night shortly before 7:00 p.m. Thursday evening and was caught on security camera.
The customer went into the store with only her debit card to purchase a few items; leaving behind her make-up bag and purse on the passenger seat of the vehicle. When she returned to her jeep after shopping for about 15 minutes she realized that her bags were gone.
McRuss immediately pulled footage that showed a man and woman in the store taking items from the store before walking outside and committing one final thief. Outside CCTV footage caught the man opening the customer's car door and removing the handbag as his female woman ran to the front passenger seat and facilitated a quick exit from the parking lot.
That woman has been identified by the employees at McRuss as Lidia Wright, a former employee at the neighborhood grocery store.
If you know who they are you are encouraged to contact the police and assist with this investigation.
