Purse Thief being sought by Texarkana Texas Police.
According to authorities a couple were out eating at local restaurant on a Sunday evening earlier this month.
Police say after 7 pm the suspect in this case pulled into the parking lot in a newer black or dark blue Ford Mustang with Texas tags. After he parked beside their vehicle, he apparently noticed a woman’s purse inside the victims unlocked car.
After getting in and out of his car a couple of times, authorities say he went inside the restaurant. He briefly looked around – never going past the hostess’ podium. He then walked back outside, allegedly took the purse from the vehicle, and immediately jumped in his car to leave.
Police say the couple didn’t know anything had happened until they went back out to their car about an hour later.
Authorities say this was captured on video. They are hoping someone will recognize the suspect and his vehicle. If you have any information, please call Texarkana, Texas Police at 903-798-3116.
