Police looking for reported Gibson's cookbook thief in Concord
CONCORD – Local police are asking for the public's help to identify a woman who appears to have shoplifted $500 worth of cookbooks from Gibson's Bookstore earlier this month.
The theft was reported on Monday when the store manager said he reviewed surveillance video after discovering the books were missing. He said initially it was unclear whether the loss reflected an inventory error or a theft. After viewing the recording, the manager said he could see a woman taking the books from a section that held Julia Child cookbooks. A total of 15 books were discovered missing.
Police say it appears that an older woman is leaving the Main Street store on April 7, holding something between her legs. The woman is described as being “older” with white hair.
The Concord Police Department is asking the public to assist in identifying the individual depicted in the photographs.
Anyone with information about the incident can call the Concord Regional Crimeline at (603) 226-3100.
