• Simple sketch helps police ID market theft suspect

    Updated:
    LANCASTER, Pa. (AP) - Police say an extremely simple sketch helped investigators identify a suspect in a theft from a Pennsylvania farmers market.

    Lancaster police say the suspect pretended to be an employee before stealing an undisclosed amount in cash from a stand inside Central Market last month.

    A witness provided the minimalist black-and-white drawing to officers. Police say while the sketch was cartoonish, it helped remind an investigator of a potential suspect.

    A photo of the suspect was given to the witness, who made a positive identification.

    Police are searching for 44-year-old Hung Phuoc Nguyen, who is facing two counts of theft.

    A spokesman for the police department says that as of Friday afternoon, Nguyen still hadn't been arrested.
