Vehicle and Purse Theft Suspect

SAVANNAH, GA (February 14, 2014): West Chatham Precinct detectives for the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department are searching for the suspect responsible for a residential vehicle theft tied to a Pooler purse snatching.

Just after 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 6, Metro responded to an auto theft at a residence near Bluegrass Lane and Woodchuck Hill Road. Officers observed no signs of forced entry. Further investigation revealed that earlier that day, a purse belonging to a resident of the house was reported stolen from a Pooler business. Among the purse’s contents were its owner’s driver’s license and keys to the residence and the stolen vehicle.

About two hours later, the vehicle was discovered with a deflated tire at a gas station on the 4800 block of Ogeechee Road. The vehicle was returned to its owner.

Investigators believe the suspect is a black male in his late teens or early 20s. He has a short haircut that is faded on the sides.

Anyone with information on these crimes is asked to call Crimestoppers at (912) 234-2020 or text CRIMES (274637) using the keyword CSTOP2020. Tipsters remain anonymous and may qualify for a cash reward.
