Deposit box stolen from shopper at Weavers Way in Chestnut Hill

Police are seeking the public’s assistance in a theft that took place at the Chestnut Hill Weavers Way store on June 19 at 5:10 p.m. Two unknown males entered the store and appeared to target an 82-year-old female who was shopping.

One of the suspects bumped into the shopper and used a blue and white garment bag to conceal theft. When the shopper attempted to pay for her purchase, she realized that a black deposit box carrying an unspecified amount of cash, uncashed checks and credit card slips was missing.

The suspects exited from the rear of the store and took off in an undetermined direction.

The first suspect is described as a black male between the ages of 30 and 40 with a stocky build. He was wearing a blue baseball cap, a blue/purple t-shirt, dark shorts and black sneakers.
