Cops are hoping to identify the woman they say stole an 86-year-old’s purse inside a Key Food at 319 Kings Highway late last month.

According to authorities, just before 6 p.m. on Sunday, December 24, the elderly woman accidentally left her black handbag – which contained $6,200 in cash – on a freezer case; shortly thereafter, cops say, an unidentified woman was caught on camera snatching it and leaving the supermarket.

The suspect is said to be a white woman anywhere from 45 to 55 years old. She is further described as being five feet seven inches tall and weighing approximately 180 pounds with a heavy build, light complexion and blonde hair. She was last seen wearing a black jacket, black shirt, blue jeans and brown shoes.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).  The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime stoppers website at www.nypdcrimestoppers.com by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then entering TIP577.

All calls are strictly confidential.
