Belmont police seek larceny suspect

Police are asking the public’s help in identifying a woman suspected of stealing an elderly woman’s purse in a Belmont restaurant last month.

Belmont police say the theft took place Aug. 8 at the Old Stone Steak House, on South Main Street. The theft was captured on the restaurant’s video security system, according to investigators.

Police say the video shows a white female, about 5 feet 7 and in her 30s, sitting in the bar areas. The woman was talking to restaurant staff members when she picked up the victim’s purse. Investigators say the woman tried putting the stolen purse inside her purse, but it would not fit. The woman then put the stolen purse under her arm and left.

Anyone with information in the case is asked to call Belmont police at 704-825-3792.
