Barrington police still seeking help on shoplifting case


The Barrington Police Department is hoping someone can help crack a case that's more than six months old.

On May 28, 2013, a  woman with dark hair walked into Barrington Books and allegedly stole approximately 160 Alex & Ani jewelry pieces worth more than $5,000. Police shared information — including a surveillance photo of the suspect — with the media, but failed to track down the allegedly shoplifter.

Police are again hoping someone from the public will recognize the woman and contact the police department. Anyone with information is asked to call Barrington Police Detective Benjamin Ferreira at 401-437-3930.

And they wonder why the public can't help.

Maybe you idiots could post a better screen-shot of this thieving broad, then maybe we could help.
