Know This Purse Snatcher? He Stole Chirlee’s Purse From The Tin Theater
On Thursday (Oct. 14th) at approximately 11:51am, a purse belonging to Chirlee House, Mother of Dan “The Sausageman” House, was stolen from inside the Tin Theater lobby in Olde Burien.
Inside Chirlee’s handbag was a bank bag, credit cards, ID, $8 in cash and the usual purse-related stuff.
It’s never easy to be the victim of theft, and since we know and love Chirl, we’ve decided to step in and see if we can help spread the word and grab this purse-snatcher.
Fortunately, the suspect was caught on surveillance camera, and is pictured below in some framegrabs:
Dan says that the video shows the man carefully casing the room, waiting for the right moment to act. Chirlee’s purse was on a chair next to him, and she was in the theater giving a tour; a Server was just a few feet away in the ticket booth. Neither saw the man do the actual deed, but the video clearly shows him grabbing it, stashing it under his shirt, then calmly walking out.
Burien Police are on the case already, and are asking that if anyone recognizes the suspect in the photos, to please call them immediately at (206) 296-3311.
Dan is offering a reward of a $100 Tin Room Gift Card to whomever helps find the culprit.
