Brazen Thief Steals Purse From Under Employee’s Desk, Calmly Walks Away

Police in Syracuse are on the lookout for a man who is the proud new owner of a stylish purse, one that he obtained with the classic five-finger discount. In other words, this guy is a dirty thief who stole a purse belonging to a boutique employee, and his entire crime was caught by a security camera.

The infuriating incident took place in February, when the unidentified culprit strolled into Sweet Hearts Boutique and momentarily appeared to browse the girly goods.

When he realized that nobody was watching him, the man made his way around the counter and stole a woman’s bag from underneath. The purse contained all the woman’s essentials, including an undisclosed amount of cash, her credit card, and her IDs.

Police plan to slap him with a felony charge of grand larceny – but that’s assuming that they’re able to track him down.
