Purse thief caught on tape in the act

Friday, March 25, 2011 - 7:49am

A purse snatcher is on the run, but she was caught on tape at a Wal-Mart in Port Allen.

The surveillance video shows a shopper leaving her purse unattended for just a second,
and a woman with a baby swipes it from her cart, quickly walking away.

Within minutes, the suspect was out of the store and driving off in a red car.

Local police hope someone can identify her. The woman has been using the victim’s debit card at other Port Allen stores.

If you have any information, please call the West Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office at 343-9234.
