Suspects sought in purse-snatching outside Family Dollar store

Aug 26, 2011 7:28:00 PM - thestate.com
Columbia police are investigating whether one of the suspects in a purse-snatching at the Farrow Road Family Dollar store last Sunday is the same man being sought by county officials in a similar robbery at the Decker Boulevard Bi-Lo on August 23rd.

In both instances, a suspect seen in surveillance video is wearing a green or yellow polo-style shirt and dark pants or shorts.

Two suspects are being sought in the robbery Sunday of a woman at the Family Dollar store at 3032 Farrow Road. The video shows them walking outside the store’s front entrance shortly before 12:30 p.m.. One of the suspects is dressed in a red shirt and dark work pants. He may have dreadlocks or “twists”, police said. The other suspect is dressed in a green or yellow polo-style shirt and dark shorts.

According to police, the video shows the victim leaving the store and stopping to talk to someone outside at which point the red-shirted suspect grabs her purse and runs out of the camera's field of view.

This is the third purse-snatching reported by local authorities since August 18th.
