Crimeline: Police seek Market Basket wallet thief
The Concord police are looking for help identifying a man they believe took a woman’s wallet from her shopping cart at the Market Basket on Storrs Street.
The police said the theft happened about 5 p.m. Nov. 20. The woman told the police her wallet was on top in her purse, which she left open in her cart. “Both police and store management reviewed the security footage and noticed a man reach over and go through the victim’s purse while she was turned away from her cart,” the police said.
The man – described as about 5-foot-11 with a medium build, short dark hair and unshaven – continued to shop, the police said, then left the store, apparently on foot, after paying for items in his cart. The man entered the store wearing a green jacket and carrying a black backpack, the police said. “At some point after entering the store he removed both the jacket and backpack and placed them into his shopping cart,” the police said. At the time, he was wearing a gray shirt, baseball cap and blue jeans.
