DENHAM SPRINGS – Authorities are asking for the public’s help finding two women who are suspected of stealing purses from small clothing stores around the area.
Denham Springs Police said the women stole a purse while at the Kids Again clothing store on Dec. 14. The women posed as shoppers, and one distracted the store owner while the other took the purse. They then left in a four-door car that could be a Saturn Aura.
Bank cards that were in the purse were later used in Hammond and in Houston, Texas. Investigators said they learned later at least one of the women was involved in a purse theft at a children’s clothing store in Hammond.
Anyone with information about the women’s identities should call the Denham Springs Police Department at (225) 665-5106.
