Police seeking Twin River purse thief
LINCOLN – It is the eye in the sky, looking at you.
A surveillance camera at Twin River Casino on the day after Thanksgiving caught a bird’s-eye glimpse of a man who allegedly snatched a purse off of a nearby chair – and images released by the Lincoln Police Department on Thursday show the man staring right back at the camera.
Lincoln Police are seeking the public’s help in identifying the larceny suspect. According to police, the reported larceny occurred in the early morning hours of Friday, Nov. 23. Around 5:30 that morning, a yet-to-be-identified black man was allegedly seen taking a purse off the chair of another patron.
Video surveillance from the casino shows the man taking the pocket book into a nearby bathroom, police said. The purse was later recovered but was missing more than $1,500 in cash and casino vouchers.
Anyone with information on the suspect’s identity is asked to contact Lincoln Police detectives at 401-3331111. Information can also be sent using the Lincoln Police online tip line, found at www. lincolnpoliceri.com.
