Le Roy PD asks for public's help to find wallet thief
The Le Roy Police Department is asking for assistance in determining who stole a wallet from an elderly female while in a supermarket on West Main Street in Le Roy. The victim states that she was in the market between 3 and 3:45 p.m. on Thursday, June 12, when an unknown person stole her wallet from inside her purse while she was not looking.
The Le Roy Police is advising all citizens to be alert for this type of criminal behavior as it is not unusual for criminals to follow individuals around a store, then distract the attention of the victim intentionally or wait until the victim is distracted for other reasons, then reach into the purse and steal the wallet.
The Le Roy Police is asking that the citizens be alert to this type of behavior and call 9-1-1 immediately if you see this type of behavior happening to yourself or others.

What's that? Dial 911 if you see some scumbag robbing an old lady?
Yeah. Right after you whack the "perp" upside the head with a 3-day-old loaf of Di Paolo's bread.
"Clean-up needed in aisle 7. Bring a broom, dustpan and gurney. That is all."
