Person of interest
By Shavonne Walker
Salisbury Police are looking for a man and woman as persons of interest following the taking of a large sum of money from an elderly woman at a Subway restaurant.
The woman, 71, reported to authorities Thursday she went to the restaurant located inside Walmart to buy some cookies. She placed an envelope containing $700 on the counter, paid for her cookies and left. Ten minutes later when she realized she’d left her envelope on the counter she returned to the restaurant and the envelope was gone.
A restaurant employee recalled seeing a black male in line behind the woman pick up the envelope and leave. Store surveillance captured the man and a woman inside the restaurant and then leave Walmart together.
According to surveillance video the man picked up the envelope, looked inside and walked away from the counter. He turned as if to go back toward the counter, but he then walked to a woman sitting at a table. The two then left together.
Anyone with information as to the identity of the two people they are asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-866-639-5245 or Salisbury Police at 704-638-5333.
