Police are searching for a man who stole purses filled with cash and credit cards from employees at two Queens convenience stores, including a Forest Hills 7-Eleven, back in October.

The thief, according to a police report released earlier this week, entered the 7-Eleven at 107-40 Queens Blvd. on Oct. 19 at around 5:40 p.m., where he stole a purse belonging to a 52-year-old female employee.

The victim’s purse had $714 in cash, along with credit cards and a cell phone.

The employee’s credit cards were later found to have been used for unauthorized purchases totaling approximately $700 at various retail shops.

The thief then hit a convenience store at Jackson Heights on Oct. 27, where he stole a purse containing cash, cards, and more belonging to a 54-year-old female employee.
