WATERBURY — Two people were cited for a theft that took place in Waterbury.

On January 25, authorities say they were notified that Nancy Potter, 83, of Waterbury, had her purse stolen from a shopping cart immediately following her loading groceries into her vehicle at around 9:00 a.m.

Surveillance cameras captured images of the accused removing the woman’s purse from the cart, loading it into a separate vehicle, and entering Shaw’s.

With the assistance of the public, police say they were able to positively identify Daniel and Rachael McLeod as the suspects.

Yesterday, both were issued citations to appear in court on March 16 to answer to the charge of larceny.
