Police request public assistance identifying suspect
Police are requesting the public’s assistance in identifying a suspect in relation to a wallet that was taken in Dartmouth last week.
A woman called police to file a lost property report after she left her wallet containing cash and identification in a shopping cart at a store on Wright Avenue in Dartmouth on April 20. She contacted the store when she realized her wallet was missing, but employees couldn’t find it.
