November 13, 2013 at 6:55 AM

LIVINGSTON, NJ – The Livingston Police Department is currently searching for a man that has recently been stealing ladies wallets out of their purses around town and other townships.

The thief is described as a black male with dark complexion, mustache and beard with some gray, 5’10” to 5’11”, and possibly in his forties.

On Oct. 24, the man was seen wandering through a medical office building at 201 South Livingston Ave.  He took a wallet from an unattended purse at the receptionist desk and immediately used the credit cards at 7-11 in Livingston and then at Pathmark and Home Depot in Newark.

On Oct. 25, the man was confronted while wandering through an office building in Florham Park, however, there was no theft reported on this occasion. 

After Livingston Police sent out a bulletin with the suspect’s photo they received a call from Millburn Police that they were also looking for the same person for a medical office burglary that occurred on Sept. 5, at 120 Millburn Avenue. Again he took an unattended purse and then used the victim’s credit cards.

On Oct. 28, the suspect entered a medical office building at 106 Somerset St. in New Brunswick where he stole a wallet from a fifth floor office and then used the victim’s credit cards shortly after at a Wawa and Rite Aid in South River.  This incident is being investigated by the Rutgers University Police Department.

The same suspect returned to Livingston again on Nov. 4, and burglarized an office at 301 South Livingston Ave where he took a wallet from a purse in an empty office.  The suspect tried to use the victim’s credit card at 7-11 in Livingston but store employees recognized him from the prior incident and requested identification causing the suspect to leave.

Any information on this suspect should be reported to the Livingston Police Department at (973) 992-3000

Most of us take our fingers and hands and elbows ...
