Video: Nieman Marcus thief steals $40,000 in purses

Tampa police are searching for a brazen snatch-and-run thief who has stolen thousands of dollars' worth of designer purses from the Neiman Marcus at International Plaza.

The thief took nearly $40,000 in designer purses over a two-day period, on two separate occasions. (Some of the brands can carry hefty price tags, such as a Ralph Lauren satchel for $3,950 or a Gucci bag for $1,450.)

Police posted surveillance video Wednesday to show the suspect. He's wearing a neck brace, but in the next video he is wearing shorts and is not in the brace.

Police are asking people who might know this man to call the Crime Stoppers hotline toll-free at 1-800-873-8477.

If you know this man, call the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-873-8477.
