Police searching for purse thief


Texarkana, Texas Police are searching for an alleged purse thief.

According to police the man pictured stole a purse out of an unlocked vehicle in the Red Lobster parking lot.

A little after 7:00 p.m., he pulled into the parking lot in a newer black or dark blue Ford Mustang with Texas tags. After he parked beside the victim vehicle, he apparently noticed the wife’s purse inside their unlocked car. After getting in and out of his car a couple of times, he goes inside the restaurant and briefly looks around – never going past the hostess’ podium. He then walked back outside, took her purse from their vehicle, and immediately jumped in his car to leave. Just like that, it was all gone, but the couple didn’t know anything had happened until they went back out to their car about an hour later.

If you know him, please call police at 903-798-3116 or Texarkana Area Crime Stoppers at 903-793-STOP.
