Recently I went to Wal-Mart on SR 70. Usually, I tie my purse with the straps on the cart or click it. At least this would make it a little harder for someone to steal it.
Well, this time for some reason I did not do this. A young man was in the aisle when I reached down to get something off a shelf. Just that quick he was gone with my purse.
A young man came around the end of the aisle and heard me yelling and chased the thief. He and a couple of other men chased him as far as Sam's.
I would like to thank all for helping. Thank you to the people who stayed with me. A special thanks to the gentleman who called 911 for me. A special thanks also to the Sheriff's Department who got there quickly.
Never miss a local story.
And I would like to especially thank the young man who went back in the store to see if my purse had been dropped during the chase. Thank the Lord he had, and everything was in it.
I did not get this young man's name and I do hope I thanked him. I was so nervous. He would not accept anything for retrieving my purse. He was truly an angel on my shoulder. He will never know how thankful I am. I surely hope that God gives him many, many blessings.
One lesson learned ... you cannot know how quick this can happen to anyone. Thank you again all.
