Investigators are hoping that video surveillance will help them identify the individual who stole about 400 dollars from a woman’s pocketbook while the victim was shopping Wednesday afternoon at a Cranberry Township department store.

State Police tell KQW that a 68 year-old Cooperstown woman set down her pocketbook while she was paying for phone minutes at an electronics department counter, and then did not realize she had left it behind until she had completed her shopping and entered a checkout line.

The woman found her pocketbook, but her cash had been removed from it.
