To the editor:
I would like to thank the Lawrence Police Department for the quick response and capture of the purse snatcher. Ladies, be sure to always keep hold of your purses. Be aware of what's going on around you.
I was holding my purse over my shoulder in a local parking lot, with my arms crossed in front of me, when this guy drove up behind me and ripped my purse off of me. If the straps wouldn't have broken, he could have pulled me along with him.
Thanks, again, to the police, I got my purse and belongings back!
