My Mom had her whole purse stolen at a Frys in Tempe from the same thing.Within minutes several of her cards were used. Months later they arrested a serial purse stealer with a record (an older Native American lady). She got 10 years due to previous convictions. Women should also use the child safety belt and buckle their purses in, that would help.

Noced Up - Does your mommy still leave her purse vulnerable to thieves or did she learn her lesson?? We'd have less thieves if we had smarter citizens...

How much money was stolen from that woman??? Must have been billions and billions; this has been in the news here for so long.

I see women in stores leaving their purses in their carts wide open. This happens all the time. I actually ask them why they do it and warn them against doing so. The same thing happens in restrooms. Women will leave their purses on the counter near the sink, then enter the stall. Yes, I'm a woman, so it's OK for me to be in the women's restroom! I don't understand how some people can be so trusting. Do they think they live in OZ?

I bet the other gals just love you and your crime prevention advice "Shredder"....

Couldnt help but notice how the dates on silent witness flyer says that the dates this crimes occurred were on July 22, 2019?? Todays date is only July 15, 2019!? Crime info needs to be revised and edited to avoid misinforming the public.[ninja][ninja]

Ooooh this is infuriating.. Wouldn't you just love to catch someone doing this and get them arrested?

Shredder

Daddy, are all the deleted comments yours? What in the world did you say? Have you been a bad boy? [innocent]

Why is this news? Any women that leaves her purse in her shopping cart is inviting theives to come and take it. Lesson learned I hope.

Ok, I'm not Sherlock Holmes, but this is what I can tell you: YES the guy wearing blue when she took the wallet is the SAME guy who used the victim's card @ TARGET. (His WALK and his stupid SHOES give him away. The lady that took the wallet is the same one using the card @ Target AGAIN. (Her HAT and her stupid red SANDALS give her away. Not sure how the third lady came into play though... [wink]

Daddy it never WAS an "experiment". It was the goal to implement "income equality"- to bring entirety of world's impoverished up to living standards of mid-class America. Illegals, disability slobs, all now receiving free medical care, education and housing- or subsidized housing- utilities and EBT, while we who used to raise a family on less than 100k income per year are now unable to, because we are taxed, deducted from pay to levels WE will never benefit off, only those who never paid ONE DIME into the system receive it.

NothingToSeeHere

Dirtballs come in all races. And, exploiting illegals that are fearful to report a crime is extremely low.

I wonder how many illegals are here just to commit crimes against "rich Americans".

nuusmaan

Look it up- the crime rate among immigrants is lower than the rest of society and among the undocumented a little lower still. It seems like maybe it would be higher than average, but no- I looked it up. You should too. People here make up their own facts a good deal of the time, or just repeat what they've heard from someone on talk radio or cable TV.

The person that stole the wallet was not color catalogued, she's wet

I also think the man there that shows up in the blue jeans is her ACCESSORY. He's wearing a cap and sunglasses- & to me, appears almost to take notice of what happened. This reminds me very much of the Eastern European crime syndicates. A lot of the "New Americans" are extremely criminally savvy, expert in vice. Americans are clueless to the scams 3rd worlders have a lifetime of training in.

How stupid you need to be to get a warning not to leave your purse unattended in a public location?

Sadly, women are clueless to threats to their well being. She was probably distracted by something shiny and neglected her purse.

JF Conlon

Poor dumb female, probably attracted to a shiny bread wrapper or can of tuna. Barefoot & pregnant, the only solution (well, maybe not TOO pregnant)!

ObeyLaws

Joanie - I dunno she may have been sorting her coupons, but pleasssee NOT pregnant! Barefoot if her nails are done, pink preferably... As you know, slutt.y good - pregnant bad.
