The St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office is seeking the identity of the persons pictured. On February 9, 2018, a customer was shopping at Harris Teeter, located in California, when the victim was approached by suspect #1, who engaged the victim in conversation. While the victim was distracted, a second suspect approached, and stole the victim’s wallet, which was inside a purse in the shopping cart. The suspects then went to two surrounding businesses and used the victim’s credit cards to purchase over $2,500 in merchandise and gift cards.

Anyone with information on the identity of the suspects is asked to contact DFC. Christopher Beyer at (301) 475-4200 extension *8004, or by email at Christopher.Beyer@stmarysmd.com.

Citizens may remain anonymous and contact Crime Solvers at (301) 475-3333, or text a tip to “TIP239” plus their message to “CRIMES” (274637). Through the Crime Solvers Program tipsters are eligible for an award of up to $1,000 for information about a crime in St. Mary’s County that leads to an arrest or indictment.
