ROSEVILLE (CBS SF) — A woman police have dubbed the ‘Grocery Store Purse Pirate’ was caught on video stealing another shopper’s wallet.
The video shows an unsuspecting woman who takes her eyes off her purse to inspect the veggies and in a matter of seconds, her wallet was gone.
Roseville Police Department released the video in hopes someone might recognize the suspect and turn her in.
Meantime, they are warning shoppers to always keep their purses closed and “under control at all times,” and never leave purses on the backs of chairs in restaurants or grocery carts for even a few seconds.”
