WINOOSKI, Vt. -

Winooski police say the public helped them identify a suspect in a store larceny.

Monday night, police released surveillance photos taken last week at Chuck's Mobil. Police believed the man in the pictures was keeping the clerk busy while the woman stole about 40 packs of cigarettes from the shelves behind the clerk. After we aired the pictures, police say they received numerous calls identifying both people.

Police now believe the man in the pictures was not involved in the theft.

Police say the woman has been identified as Amber Richer, 26. They released a photo of her from a previous arrest. If you know where Richer is, you're asked to call Winooski police.
