Police search for Target purse snatching suspects

Mobile Police need your help identifying two people they say stole a woman’s purse out of her shopping cart in the target parking lot on Schillinger Road.

Police say the victim was putting groceries in her car when a man walked up and snatched her purse.

Investigators say the victim fought with the thief, but he got in the passenger seat of a white Pontiac Grand Am and drove off.

The white Pontiac was last seen traveling north onto Leroy Stevens Road.

Mobile Police say it’s important to always be aware of your surroundings.

“When you’re out shopping running errands you’re not really paying attention and that’s what these criminals are looking for. They’re going to target people that seem like they’re preoccupied, in a hurry or having to deal with children,” said Ashley Rains with MPD.

Police say car did not have a tag on it.
