WAREHAM – From Wareham Police: On Saturday October 20, at about 7:40 a.m. Officer Calib Larue responded to the Cumberland Farms on Main Street for a larceny. At the scene, the victim reported that at about 6:50 a.m. she put her purse down momentarily on a counter, and walked to the back of the store. When she returned she was about to make a purchase and realized that over $60.00 in cash was stolen from the purse. A review of the security footage revealed that a customer in a United States Postal Uniform had reached into her purse and taken the money.
