Video of Boynton Purse Snatcher

Boynton Beach Police are hoping this newly released video of a Britney Spears look-alike purse snatcher and her accomplice help nab the pair. Shortly after this scene, the young woman in the foreground exercises her sticky fingers, boldly grabbing the Kate Spade purse belonging to a 79-year-old woman who was shopping for seafood at Publix Monday afternoon.

The suspect, described

as a white female in her early 30's with brown hair, wearing a light-blue tank top and blue jeans, was last seen exiting the Publix with her K-Federesque sidekick, a white male, early 30s, with short brown hair, wearing a blue buttoned-down shirt with a design on the back and blue jeans.

Anyone with info on the duo, call Det. Jason Llopis at 561-742-6144, Det. Sgt. Frank Ranzie at 561-742-6132, or Crime Stoppers of Palm Beach County at 800-458-TIPS. Anonymous tips can be submitted at bbpd.org.
