East Hampton Village detectives are seeking the public’s help in identifying a couple who they say stole a $2700 handbag from What Goes Around Comes Around on Main Street the afternoon of August 11.
Village police are working with the Suffolk County police and have offered a reward of up to $5000 for the person that can identify the duo. Images of the couple were captured on the store’s surveillance cameras, as well as a video.
The video shows the man, wearing a white T-shirt with a large black Nike Swoosh across the chest, grabbing a Louis Vuitton handbag from atop a shelf over a clothes rack. A female approaches the man, and the two come together. The female pulls a dress off the rack, concealing the man’s actions. When she puts the dress back on the rack, the handbag is gone. The two then walk off.
Store employees apparently noticed that the bag was missing the morning of August 14 and contacted police.
The video can be viewed at Facebook.com/SCPDTV address, under Grand Larceny East Hampton Village.
The police ask that anyone who can identify the duo contact village detectives at 631-324-0777 or Suffolk County detectives at the Crime Stoppers hotline, 800-220-TIPS. All calls will be kept in confidence.
