St. Pete Police Searching For Purse Thieves

Purse thieves

On June 21 at about 12:30 at a Marshalls store located at 2036 66th St. N. a man and a woman tried to steal several designer purses worth about $3000. But when their efforts to distract the manager didn’t work, they left empty handed.

About a half hour later, at 1:10pm, the same pair entered a TJMaxx store located at 2066 Tyrone Blvd. In this case, the manager tried to stop the man as he ran out of the store holding several designer purses and the man shoved the manager aside. She fell and suffered some injuries.

This is considered strong armed robbery.

Here’s a video of the pair entering the store. Police would like to find the pair.
