Fast friends

A thief stole a woman’s wallet near the doorway of a Smith Street bar on May 17, but two of her friends witnessed the dastardly deed and police were able to arrest the suspect.

The apprehended man, 38, pinched the wallet inside of Angry Wade’s, at the corner of Butler Street, at 12:30 am. The wallet held the victim’s health insurance card and two credit cards.

Angry Wade’s is owned by the ex-husband of the owner of the Sweet Melissa Patisserie one block away, an interesting neighborhood tidbit.

Carted off

A woman shopping in a Mill Street grocery had her pocketbook stolen on May 9.

The victim, 41, said her purse was in her shopping cart at 5 pm, but a fleet-fingered thief stole it when she wasn’t paying close attention inside the market between Henry and Hicks streets.

The stolen bag contained $43, a debit card and a pawnshop receipt for a gold chain.
