Purse snatcher targets supermarket shoppers in Toms River
TOMS RIVER (WABC) -- Authorities are asking for help identifying a purse snatcher at supermarkets in Toms River.
Surveillance video posted on the Toms River Police Department Facebook page shows a woman stealing a 65 year old woman's purse from her shopping cart.
That crime occurred in the Shoprite located at #2 Route 37 West in the fall of 2013.
Investigators believe that the suspect continues to prey on elderly women and may be involved in more recent thefts that have not been caught on camera in Toms River.
The images captured in the video from last fall are the best so far.
UPDATE: Toms River Police says the person pictured here has been arrested and charged. Crystal M. Leo, age 28 from Brick was charged with the theft of a purse from a 65 year old woman at Shoprite.
