Los Altos Police turned to Silicon Valley Crime Stoppers Monday to investigate a case of a purse stolen from a car.
Police found that the credit cards from that purse had been used in a Safeway and a burger restaurant, said Det. Abe Velasco.
Photos of two men taken from the restaurant on El Camino Real and Grant Road in Mountain View and a Safeway store in Sunnyvale, have been released, along with a photo of the car the two were driving.
In the burger restaurant, one young man wore a black jacket and a black baseball hat backwards. He is standing next to another young man in a plaid shirt and watch cap. The four-door, light-colored vehicle at In-N-Out Burger has a sunroof.
"Anytime we think the public can assist us in solving the case, we'll release photos and ask for help," Det. Velasco said.
Velasco said the purse was stolen from an unlocked car parked overnight in the driveway of a home in south Los Altos sometime between 8 p.m. April 13 and 9:30 a.m. April 14.
If anyone recognizes the individuals or has information that person may contact Officer D. Corkern (650) 947-2674. Crime Stoppers has an anonymous tip submission feature.
