Police Issue Warning After Purse-Snatching in Bellaire
A purse-snatching incident in Bellaire late last week has prompted police to advise shoppers on how to stay safe.
Police are urging women with purses, coming out of stores carrying their purchases, to look around them before returning to their vehicle. If a person is lurking in the lot or appears to be watching you, then go back into the store and ask for help.
Also, when taking purchases to your car, police advise that you put your purse in first, then your groceries. They say leaving your purse on your shoulder while loading your car is just what a purse snatcher is hoping for.
