Crimeline: Woman sought for stealing wallet at Job Lot

The Concord police are looking for a white, middle-age woman who they say swiped another woman’s wallet last month at Ocean State Job Lot on D’Amante Drive.

Authorities said the alleged thief can be seen on video surveillance footage slipping the wallet, which had been left on a checkout counter by the other woman minutes before, under her shopping bag and then exiting the store. Once in the parking lot, she walks “right past the victim and makes no attempt to return the wallet to her,” the police said.

The woman is believed to be heavy set and have short hair, and she is possibly in her 50s. On Aug. 31, the day of the incident, she wore a purple turtleneck and dark sunglasses and got into a dark SUV, possibly a Ford Explorer, authorities said.

Anyone with information who can help identify the woman may call the Concord Regional Crimeline at 226-3100, submit information online at www.concordregionalcrimeline.com or text “TIP234” and a message to CRIMES (274637). Crimeline awards cash to anyone whose information leads to the arrest and/or indictment of criminals. All tips remain anonymous.

Here it is a month later and the Concord cops are finally getting around to ask if anyone saw this. Time is of the essence when trying to solve a theft crime. Evidence is disposed of and witnesses forget exactly what the thief and the victim looked like, and in all likelihood, exactly what happened . Many crimes could be solved if the cops used tools like the Theft Alert website, the Monitor and other news outlets to ask for help, but not a month later.
