Police Look For Suspects In St. Joseph Theft

The St. Joseph Department of Public Safety is looking for a couple of thieves who stole cash from a resident’s home last week. It says the theft occurred around 1:15 p.m. on Wednesday, January 6 in the 900 block of Pleasant Street. The driver of a truck approached the homeowner claiming to be from a roofing company and asking for a bucket of water. While the driver of the truck had the homeowner distracted in the kitchen, a passenger from the truck got out of the vehicle and entered the home. He stole some envelopes full of cash from the homeowner’s purse before both men left the scene. The driver is described as a Hispanic man in his 40s. Both men are described as having medium builds. The vehicle is a newer model whiter Chevrolet Silverado Crew Cab. It had tinted windows and no plates and a black cover over the bed. Anyone with information on the suspects is asked to contact the St. Joseph Department of Public Safety.
