Purse theft witnesses identifed

The Marquette County Sheriff’s Department has identified the two people and the vehicle sought in connection with the larceny of a purse a week ago at Wal–Mart in Marquette Township.

A number of tips were received and the witnesses have been identified.

Police say the pair may have witnessed the theft of a purse from the store in Marquette Township August 21.

Marquette County Sheriff Mike Lovelace says the purse contained a substantial amount of cash and was inadvertently left in a shopping cart.

The surveillance video shows a vehicle parking next to the cart at Wal–Mart, then that same vehicle was seen at the Target store across the street where the purse–minus its cash –was found.
