From Deep East Texas Crime Stoppers
LUFKIN, TEXAS (News Release) - Someone stole a purse out of a woman's car while she was trying to park at her house, and your help is needed to identify the thieves.
The crime occurred in mid-December as an older couple arrived at their Lufkin home. The husband unlocked the gate and house while the wife parked their car, but before she entered the driveway, a man opened her passenger side door and took her purse. The suspect is a younger, black male, and he fled as the passenger in a maroon Chevrolet Impala.
Later that date, two black men walked out of Walmart in Lufkin without paying for two computers, and they drove away in the same Impala used in the purse snatching.
The investigating officers located the vehicle and its owner but they did not link the owner to the crimes and do not know the identities of the male suspects.
Video from both crimes is posted at www.facebook.com/DETCS. The resolution of both videos is low but someone knows the criminals and may have specific knowledge of the two crimes. If that someone is you, contact Crime Stoppers for a chance to turn that knowledge into cash.
