Police say the trio tried to take off with $4,000 in Dooney & Bourke purses from Macy’s on October 23rd, but the store security guard confronted them before they were able to get away, and they dropped the purses.

Investigators believe these are the same people who got away with another $4,000+ purse theft from Macy’s on October 12th.

These suspects may be connected to an additional case in Hillsborough County, as well, according to St. Pete Police.

Anyone who can identify this man is asked to call 893-7780 or text “SPPD” and your tip to TIP411.
