A wanted woman was caught on camera stealing a purse that was left behind at a pretzel shop inside the Roosevelt Field Mall.

Nassau County Police Detectives responded to the mall at approximately 12:45 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 8 in East Garden City, where a woman reported that her purse had been stolen.

According to police, the woman left her purse unattended at an Auntie Annie’s store, and when she returned to recover it, the purse was gone.

The woman was able to review store surveillance cameras and it was determined that an unknown woman took her purse and fled the area.

The African American woman was wearing a grey sweater and carrying Victoria’s Secrets bags on the day of the purse snatching, police said. Anyone with information or who recognizes the woman has been asked to contact the Nassau County Crime Stoppers by calling 1-800-244-TIPS.
