BATON ROUGE - Police released surveillance photos of a woman who detectives said stole a purse from a Baton Rouge grocery store recently, and asked for the public's help identifying her.

Detectives said the woman took another shopper's purse from the Piggly Wiggly on Airline Highway on June 6, around 7:30 p.m.

Police said the victim left the store without her purse, which had a large amount of cash inside, and the woman in the photo took it. Investigators said the victim came back to the store after realizing she didn't have her purse and found it was gone.

Police said surveillance video showed the woman in the photo entering the store with one purse, but leaving with two.

Anyone with any information on the woman's identity should contact BRPD Financial Crimes at (225) 389-3871.
