Suspects Sought in Purse Snatching of Elderly Woman

The subjects depicted in the attached surveillance photographs are suspects in a grand theft purse snatching that occurred on Aug. 22 at approximately 11:08 a.m.

The suspects followed a 72-year-old female victim to her Westside home after she exchanged dollars for foreign currency at an Upper State Street coin shop.

After she parked her car, but before she entered her residence, her purse containing several hundred dollars worth of U.S. currency and euros was stolen.

The suspects may be associated with a silver colored sedan.

If you recognize either of these men, please contact Santa Barbara police Detective David Hedges at 805.897.2327 or [email protected], or call anonymously to 805.897.2386.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
