Just before 1 a.m. on Sept. 17, Officer Zachary Black met with a woman at Warwick Police headquarters regarding a larceny complaint.

The reporting party told Black that at approximately 5 p.m. on Sept. 16, she had been shopping at Kohl’s on Bald Hill Road when she misplaced her purse while trying on shoes.

At that point, she was approached by an employee from the store who told her the purse had been taken to the store’s customer service department.

The reporting party said she retrieved the purse and continued shopping. When she went to the check out line, however, she discovered her wallet was not inside the purse. The wallet, valued at roughly $30, is said to have contained multiple credit and debit cards, $120 in cash, a driver’s license, a AAA card, medical cards and two gift cards.

The reporting party provided Black with a description of a suspicious man who had been in the store’s shoe section at the time the purse went missing. The matter was documented and forwarded to detectives.
