WILKINS TOWNSHIP (KDKA) — Police are investigating after a woman allegedly stole three purses from a Wilkins Township restaurant on Veteran’s Day.
It happened at the Texas Roadhouse on William Penn Highway. Police did not say if the victims were customers or employees.
According to police, the suspect is a white female with glasses wearing a blue jacket who can be seen on surveillance video walking around near what appears to be an entrance to the kitchen.
