MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The Broward Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help in identifying two male suspects they say stole a purse from a passenger at Fort Lauderdale International.
BSO says the incident happened on Sept. 15 inside Terminal 4.
The men were captured on surveillance video.

The second suspect is described by police as being 6 feet tall and about 220 pounds. They say he wore a black Kangol hat, rolled up knee-length blue jean shorts and tan shoes with white soles.
