The purse was stolen last week in the parking lot of Walmart off Texas Boulevard. The victim realized she had left her purse in a shopping cart before she took off, she went back looking for it, but her pink purse was already gone.
Investigators are looking to speak to the woman seen in this video. She is described as wearing all black and was carrying a child dressed in pink. They say the woman was in the area of the parking lot where the purse was left, and she was also present when the victim reported the purse missing. The pink purse contained cash, credit cards, two cell phones and more importantly identification documents. Police say keeping IDs in your purse can lead to an even bigger issue-identity theft.
