Opportunist thief nabs woman's purse in Halesowen bank

3:53pm Thursday 1st May 2014

A SNEAKY female thief stole a shopper's purse when she left it momentarily on a desk at a bank in Halesowen.

The 56-year-old female mislaid her purse at TSB but CCTV footage show another woman quickly hiding the purse under a leaflet and then secreting it in her shopping trolley.

The purse was later handed into Iceland minus the cash. Police officers want to talk to the two people pictured.

Anyone who recognises them should phone PCSO Beth Cooper on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
