Gainesville police seek public's help in locating thieves

By B.J. Williams
GAINESVILLE - Detectives with the Gainesville Police Department have released surveillance video of two thieves who swiped a purse from a customer at Publix on Dawsonville Highway.

Cpl. Joe Britte says a man and a woman worked together to distract a customer and then lift her purse from the grocery cart. He says when police have released surveillance footage in the past, tips from the public have helped them make arrests.

Britte says the incident actually happened in December, but they've been unable to develop leads so far.
