Detectives with the Mandeville Police Department have obtained video footage from a security camera depicting a burglary that occurred in Jefferson Parish on February 3.

You can see what appears to be a silver or grey Dodge Journey drive up along-side the victim as she is pumping gas.

An occupant of the suspect's vehicle reaches into the victim's vehicle, as she is pumping gas, and removes her purse before driving away.

This incident occurred at a Chevron gas station located near West Esplanade and Causeway Blvd.

Witnesses stated that the suspect vehicle possibly has Virginia license plates with a partial num-ber of SK.

Mandeville Police believe the suspects used the victim's credit card to purchase meals and gift cards at Chili's in Mandeville.
