Metro Richmond Crime Stoppers wants to help the Richmond Police Department identify a purse thief and we need your help to do it.

On Saturday January 21, a customer in a restaurant in the 2900 block of West Cary Street had her purse stolen. The customer had momentarily stepped away from her table, leaving her pocketbook. Unfortunately, an adult male stole her purse from the table and walked out of the store with it. Thankfully, the suspect’s image was captured on a security camera.

The suspect is described as a black male with dark hair and a full beard. He was wearing a dark colored shirt with a collar and a light colored baseball hat.

If you have information about this theft or any unsolved crime or fugitive wanted in the Metro Richmond Area call Crime Stoppers at 780-1000. You can also submit your tip through the P3 app. Your tip may crack the case for the Richmond Police and provide closure for Michael Dobbs’ family. Crime Stoppers wants to remind you that tips that lead to an arrest are eligible for a cash reward.
