Pittsburgh police seek thieves who struck during Rib Fest
Pittsburgh police are asking for help identifying a pair of thieves who made off with money belonging to a rib vendor set up on the city’s North Shore during Labor Day weekend’s Rib Fest.
Investigators said the men are suspected of breaking into the rib vendor’s car about 4 p.m. on Sept. 2 while it was parked in a lot outside of Heinz Field.
Security footage from the North Side T station shows a man in a yellow shirt and another man in plaid shorts walking across the station platform. The first man removes his yellow shirt before he walks off screen, and the second man – his suspected accomplice – is seen walking behind him with a red backpack, which police believe contained money stolen from the vendor’s vehicle.
Police also released a still image taken from surveillance footage near the parking lot, which shows the same man in the yellow shirt.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Zone 1 Det. Daniel Dulski at 412-323-7201.
