Transit Police report they're looking for a guy who sauntered out of the Tavern in the Square late on June 20 with somebody else's purse.

They've posted several photos of the Where's Purse-Snatching Waldo and ask anybody who know where he is to call detectives at 617-222-1050 or text an anonymous tip to 873873.
