Around 2.30pm, a woman attended the Fremantle Cemetery and parked her vehicle near to her parent’s graves. As she was placing flowers at the tombstone of one of her parents, a man reached into her vehicle through an open window and grabbed a handbag that was left on the floor of her vehicle. She was less that four metres away from her vehicle at the time.
The man ran away from the area and was seen getting into a faded red small four-wheel drive, driven by another person and they left the area.
A short time later, a credit card from the stolen handbag was used fraudulently to purchase alcohol from a nearby store.
Police have released a CCTV image of a man who they believe may be able to assist them with their investigation.
The man is described as: Around 35 years of age, medium build wearing a white striped top, camouflage shorts and a baseball cap.
