At what point as a society do we just throw in the towel and start stealing peoples’ dentures?

RTD has the details.

Police were searching Wednesday for a man who robbed a woman of her dentures in South Richmond.

Police said the woman was not injured in the robbery, which occurred at 7:12 p.m. Tuesday in an apartment in the 1400 block of Bainbridge Street.

The dentures were in the woman’s mouth when they were forcibly removed by the man, who fled on foot, police said.

Police identified the suspect Wednesday as Linwood Harris, 63, and said he does not live with the victim but knows her.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Harris can call Crime Stoppers at (804) 780-1000 or text Crime Stoppers at 274637, using the key word “ITip” followed by their tip. Both Crime Stoppers methods are anonymous.
