100-grand purse snatch
A purse-snatcher probably got away with more than he expected in Anniston on Tuesday morning. According to the Anniston Star, a 79-year-old woman told police she was on her way to deposit her life savings in a bank on the 100 block of Bill Robinson Parkway when she dropped her purse in the parking lot. She says a man offered to help, but instead, grabbed the purse, got into his car and left. The victim claims the purse contained more than 100-thousand dollars.
