Southampton Village police say an unidentified woman stole two valuable bags from The Perfect Purse on Oct. 25, and now detectives are asking the public to help identify the suspect.
The woman walked into the Hampton Road shop and took the leather purses — a black 10-inch Chanel double flap bag valued at $3,600 and a gold-colored Hermès imitation Birkin bag valued at $700 — while the staff were distracted, according to police.
The incident occurred at 1:45 p.m., and the suspect's face was caught on security camera.
Anyone with information is asked to call Det. Bernard J. Bobinski at 631-283-0083 ext. 247, or the Southampton Village Police Department Detective Division at 631-283-0056. All calls will remain confidential, police said.
