Would-be pickpockets ran from the Madison Sam’s Club after a woman catches one man going through her purse.
Police say a man speaking in Spanish attempted to distract a shopper while another man went through her purse.
Once the shopper noticed what was happening she yelled and the suspects ran. The shopper contacted the police department and followed the suspects out of the store. Through information obtained from the shopper and store surveillance cameras, police officers were able to determine that four Hispanic males appeared to be involved in the incident.
The four men fled the store’s parking lot in two vehicles bearing out of state license plates. Investigators are actively investigating the incident. If anyone has information on the identity of the four males pictured in the attached photographs they are asked to contact the Madison Police Department at (601) 856-6111.
