GREENVILLE, S.C. (WSPA) — Police said Upstate purse thieves who wear wigs are still on the loose.
The Greenville Police Department said the suspects target women who leave purses in cars at gyms and public parking lots.
Tens of thousands of dollars have been withdrawn from victims’ bank accounts.
“In some cases, these criminals have totally wiped out victim’s checking and saving accounts,” Greenville Police Department said in a Facebook post.
Greenville Police spokesman Donnie Porter said it appears the suspects have multiple wigs and possibly use makeup to look like the victims.
Police said one thief could be a man wearing a wig.
People are encouraged to lock their vehicles to prevent more thefts.
Anyone with information about the suspects are asked to call Crime Stoppers of Greenville at 23-CRIME (864-232-7463).
