Police are asking the public for help identifying a woman wanted in connection with a larceny investigation.

According to police, on July 6,  Milford Police was notified of a missing purse left unattended at Dave and Busters, 1201 Boston Post Road, in Milford, said Officer Joseph Dempsey.

Video surveillance showed the female complainant leave her purse behind at a table after playing a game. About 30 minutes later a group of four people walks into the same game area with the purse still on the table, he said.

 The suspect, a white female, 25-30 years old, 5-foot-3, 170-200 pounds with long brown curly hair and glasses, wearing a gray champion logo sweatshirt, places her backpack next to the purse. The suspect then stood at the same game the complainant was playing but never plays. 

A male, who was accompanying the suspect, appears to have tried to block the view of the purse from other people that were in the business as the woman opens her backpack and puts the purse inside.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Milford Police Department at (203) 878-6551 or Reference case #3318-19
