Police searching for second Moree bag snatcher

POLICE are still searching for a young person believed responsible for a bag snatch at Moree on Monday. 

About 1.15pm on November 19, two young offenders approached a 71-year-old female who was walking along Heber St.

They apparently pushed her in the back and grabbed her handbag and ran off.

A small amount of cash was in the handbag.

A 13-year-old boy was arrested early yesterday over the incident and he will be dealt with under the Young Offenders Act. 

Police are still seeking a second young person to help with their investigations.

He is described as being of Aboriginal appearance and aged 10 to 13 years old.

Anyone with information should call Moree Police on 6752 9499.
