Albury police have appealed for public help this week as they investigate three separate incidents in Lavington last month.
Images released on the Murray River Police District Facebook page show the three individuals officers want to identify because they may be able to assist with inquiries into each occurrence.
On Wednesday, January 23, at about 11.15am, a handbag was stolen from a seat near the taxi rank at Lavington Square.
Police said the owner, an older woman, placed her bag on the seat but it was then removed and she was unable to find it in the area.
“The handbag contained a number of personal items, her wallet and other items,” police said.
Earlier that same day, in an unrelated event, there was a failure to pay for petrol at a Lavington service station.
Albury officers said this incident occurred about 9.45am.
A third investigation related to a theft of electronic items from a retail store on Griffith Road, Lavington, in early January.
The theft took place about noon on Thursday, January 3, with police estimating the goods stolen to be valued at about $475.
