FOX 8 received this news release by email from the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office Friday afternoon:

Sheriff Newell Normand reports, on June 26, 2013, an off-duty JPSO Reserve officer, while working a paid detail at the Hong Kong Food Market, at 925 Behrman Hwy. in Terrytown was alerted by the store's owner that her purse containing a large sum of U.S. Currency had been stolen by whom she believed was a group of individuals around 1:00 PM that same day. A follow-up investigation was initiated at that time by JPSO Burglary Detective Darrin Parent. Detective Parent learned after interviewing the victim, that her purse was laying on a desk inside of her office in the store. She claimed a group of individuals approached the counter/office area and requested to speak with her. As she emerged from her office, most of the individuals began distracting the victim by repeatedly asking her questions. It was at that time, unbeknownst to the owner, one of the females walked behind the counter, entered the office and removed her purse.

Detective Parent questioned the store owner relative to any video surveillance she may have. Upon reviewing the store video, Detective Parent was able to view activity that seemed to corroborate what the victim had told him earlier. It was evident in the video that six individuals consisting of 5 females and 1 male seemed to be working together to perpetrate this crime.

Attached to this email are photographs taken from the store's video surveillance of the suspects, along with a silver colored mini-van the suspects were seen getting into.

Anyone with information in this matter, or who can identify the suspect(s) is asked to contact Detective Darrin Parent at 504-364-5300 or CRIMESTOPPERS.
