Police are hoping to identify two men connected with a purse snatching at a local supermarket on Wednesday.
A Point Pleasant woman was loading groceries into her car in the parking lot of the Route 34 Shop Rite when a male passenger of a small, silver colored vehicle took the woman’s purse from the rear tailgate of her car, Sgt. Erik Ertle said.
The man got into the passenger side of the silver car, which fled eastbound on Lakewood Road, Ertle said.
It was later determined that the woman’s credit cards were used at two separate businesses on Route 66 in Neptune, Ertle said.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to please call the department’s main number: (732) 449-4500.
