The Clarksville Police Department is looking for a subject who stole items from a purse at the Cottage Barn on Virginia Avenue.  According to reports, the incident took place on Tuesday afternoon at around 4:30 p.m., when the suspect spotted a purse belonging to an employee and removed several items.  Among the items taken was a bank card.  The car was used shortly after the theft at the Bridgeview Exxon and the Walmart in South Boston.

The subject was captured on the store's video surveillance system and the police are asking that anyone who recognizes the suspect to contact the department at (434) 374-5743 or send them a private message on their Facebook page.

Speaking on Thursday morning, Devin Crisman, owner of The Cottage Barn said that this is the first time this sort of incident has taken place at the shop.

“I think it's a good lesson for all our small businesses in town,” said Crisman.  “We can learn the lesson that not everyone is exactly trustworthy.  We're very trusting around here.  We didn't think anyone would take advantage of us.  We will now take precautions to protect our belongings.”
