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.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
