Authorities in Newark request the public’s help identifying a suspect who stole an employee’s handbag from inside a liquor store on December 27.

According to Newark Police, officers responded to a theft report at Galito Liquors, located in the 100 block of Elm Street.

Police say the suspect, captured on surveillance video, walked into the business around 4:04 p.m.

When he didn’t see an employee, who was in the storage area, the suspect took her bag from the counter and fled westbound on Elm Street.

Director Fragé urges anyone with information about the suspect to call the Police Division’s 24-hour Crime Stopper tip line at 1-877-NWK-TIPS (1-877-695- 8477).
