Police are on the lookout for a man who grabbed a purse from a shopping cart at Cooper’s Foods on Saturday, Mar. 9 at around 2 p.m.

Revelstoke RCMP reviewed video surveillance from the store, which showed the man leaving with the distinctive green floral purse in hand.

He is described as a Caucasian male in his mid to late twenties with a shaved head and a goatee. He was wearing blue jeans, dark shoes and a black hoodie with the large, white numbers ‘686’ on the front. 686 is a snowboard clothing brand.

Police say the man was with a Caucasian female in her twenties. She had long, dark hair, checkered pyjama pants and a dark winter jacket with a hood.

They left in what police think was a newer Ford Focus, headed towards Golden, B.C. on the Trans-Canada.
