The Meridian Police Department is looking for two men involved in incidents last weekend.

Harper also said police are seeking a suspect described as a white male who attempted to steal a purse by wresting it away from a woman in the parking lot of Bonita Lakes Mall.
Harper said the incident happened about 12:30 p.m. Friday.
