Wife went to walmart this afternoon and was doing some shopping. Her and my son were walking down the aisles. And her purse is stolen right out of the cart.
They have him on camera. He is walking behind her, then she turns, he speeds his pace, grabs her purse and walks away with it. Right with our 16 month old son sitting in the kid part of the cart in the child seat and my wife not 5 feet away. She doesn't notice till she gets to the check out line, she actually called me and asked me if I needed anything picked up before she checked out. She said she got to the check outline had everything rang up went to reach for her purse and it wasn't there. She said she thought she just left it in the car. So she walked out to the car, no purse.
The walmart manager got with her and started viewing the cameras and caught it all on camera.
She filed a police report, then I sat here and reported the two debit cards stolen, before anything nefarious was done with them. So now she is out her driver license and other stuff in there. Luckily no cash is carried by either of us normally so there was no cash lost.
This area has gone down the toilet. My bike stolen, my wife's purse. This used to be a nice area, with no major problems, or a lot of theft occurring. You could leave your cars unlocked and not have to worry about a thing. We always stayed in this area because it was "safer"
This saddens me greatly the toll this bad economy has taken. People will resort to anything to get by. I have never stolen anything in my life, nor bothered anyone's stuff. I'm the guy who will find someone's wallet and make every effort in the world to get it back to them. Then people do this to me and my family.
