A Clayton Street family thinks a man who stole money on a previous visit to their residence did the same thing again last week, according to the Commerce Police Department.
A 46-year-old white female told police that someone stole her wallet and that of her daughter from within their residence. She told the investigating officer that her purse was in the bedroom when two friends — a 36-year-old black male and a 27-year-old white female — came for a visit. She advised the officer that several months earlier some money was taken and she believed that the man was the culprit.
The woman said the wallet was the only thing missing from the purse, which was in the bedroom, and that both of the suspects were in the bedroom alone and had access to the purse.
She reported missing $281 in cash, an EBT card and her husband’s disability debit card.
The woman’s daughter was not present when the police arrived. She reported that the only thing of importance in her wallet was a driver’s license.
None of the family members knew the address of their friends, but they indicated that the male lived on Sheep Pasture Road. They declined to ride out there with the officer to point out the residence, the report said, although some time later one of the victims called the police to report that the woman lives on Woodland Circle.
