To All Concerned,
I am attempting to identify the identity of the person that maybe responsible for committing a series of distraction type larcenies from boutique style businesses, located along the King Street corridor.
We believe this is the same person possibly responsible for going around into the OLD TOWN area shops, entering the businesses, politely asking the shop employees to retrieve a store item to cause a distraction of some sort to create the opportunity to steal a wallets or money from either the back room or front counter. Please use the attached poster to make your employees aware of the suspect’s characteristics. info poster 11-121029.pdf or info poster _ 11-037 Polite Thief.pdf
We need the public’s help!!
PLEASE KEEP ALL YOUR PERSONAL BELONGINGS AND MONEY SECURED AT ALL TIMES.
Your cooperation Is needed to stop this person from criminal acts.
PLEASE, IF THIS PERSON ENTERS YOUR BUSINESS CALL 911 IMMEDIATELY.
Thank you for your cooperation,
