LAPD seeks identity of 3 pick pocket suspects

LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Los Angeles Police Department detectives are asking for the public's help to identify three pick pocket suspects.

Around 6:20 p.m. on Oct. 23, three suspects entered a business located in the 8500 block of Beverly Boulevard.

The first suspect followed a victim around the business. The suspect then stood next to the victim and appeared to be shopping while attempting to remove the victim's wallet from her purse.

Two other suspects stood next to each other and pretended to shop near the victim while the first suspect continued to try and remove the victim's wallet. Once the wallet was removed, the second suspect walked over to the first, and the pair went through the victim's wallet.
