Salisbury Police are searching for four people involved in a purse-snatching ring they believe began early in the summer.
Investigators say two men and two women followed customers inside and outside the Wal-Mart store on Arlington Street.
The suspects followed the victims to their cars, and when they turned their backs to put their groceries away, the suspects grabbed their purses.
The first incident occurred May 19 at 10:22 p.m. The second incident occurred July 28 at 12:37 p.m.
In the second incident, the suspect pushed the victim and then took her purse. In the May incident, investigators said the suspect took the purse from the victim’s grocery cart.
Police have two black males on surveillance video near the bank inside the front of the store.
One male appears to have long dreadlocks pulled back into a ponytail. In the video, he is wearing an orange or red T-shirt. The other suspect was wearing a white tank shirt.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Salisbury-Rowan Crime Stoppers at 866-639-5245 or the Salisbury Police at 704-638-5333.
