Heads up - stealing purses

Postby Tootsie » Jan 29th, 2017, 7:43 pm

Heads up ladies.

I talked to a lady who recently had her purse stolen from her grocery buggy at Superstore in Vernon. She left her purse in the top of the buggy while looking at greeting cards. Turned around and it was gone. Within an hour the thieves had gassed up their car, bought stuff, etc. with her credit cards. Now the hassle of getting all of her ID replaced.

Of course the security cameras at the grocery store and gas station probably have them. But what are they going to get - a slap on the wrist probably.

I see this all the time. I remember seeing a tv show years ago where the guys with the hidden camera put notes on purses left out in the open in shopping carts saying "I could have stolen your purse just now". The looks on the women' faces was real shock.
