Westlake Police: Pick Pocket Spendthrift

An Avon Lake woman’s wallet was taken from her purse on Dec. 8. She had hung it on the back of her chair in Bar Louie on Main St.

$5095 in charges were made on her 2 credit cards that same date at 6 stores in North Olmsted and Elyria.

Loss prevention staff at the Target stores in those cities were able to provide CCTV pictures of the same female suspect using the stolen credit cards.

Anyone who recognizes the suspect can call Westlake PD at 440.871.3311

Ladies, invest a few bucks in a purse hanger so your bag is less likely to be pick-pocketed. The delightful Mrs. Turner uses one similar to the attachment, but hers has a faux diamond ornament.
