Lawrence police are seeking help from the public, hoping to catch a man who broke into a car in the parking lot of Burger King, 1107 W. Sixth, stealing a purse inside.

The suspect was caught on the restaurant’s surveillance cameras.

Police spokesman Sgt. Bill Cory said the suspect appeared to be a white male driving a gray four-door vehicle.

Cory said the man parked next to the victim’s car around 6:15 a.m. Friday, stole a purse out of the unlocked vehicle and drove away.

Anyone with information on the auto burglary and theft is urged to call the Lawrence Police Department or the anonymous CrimeStoppers Tips Line at 843-TIPS.

I'm confused, the removed remark told smitty to not be so negative and supported the police. I think it explained when media was released but they had no control over how it was reported, could be wrong. Certainly was much nicer than most of smitty's remarks.

LadyJ,

I assume the reason my remark was banned was because I identified SMITTY's real name not because of my comments.

Figured it was just an alternate user name.

upon his arrest the suspect was heard to shout: "All right d--nit!!!

I'll admit it!

It's my man purse. I have to have my own manbag. I left it in her car, and we aranged a quiet place so I could pick it up without any embarrassment! nobody was gonna see.
now, please leave me alone! all it's got in it is stuff like ManTan, Man Brow pencil, ManScara, and Manliner.
because of this video, my buddies are really giving me he|| now!"

I suppose if it was locked they would have smashed the window, which happened in North Lawrence recently. I usually throw mine in the trunk if I don't want to take it in. A potential thief could probably watch to see if a woman walks in with a purse or not. Nobody thinks anything of a man walking in without a bag.

DIST: The poll writers at LJW must be psychic.

---Or, ... maybe there is something more sinister? maybe the LJWorld editors caused this? maybe they have a Behavior Control Technician flying over lawrence in alow-flying chopper?
inqiring minds wantto know.

maybe the media is becoming based more on the future rather than the past. Making the news more exciting and giving us a look into what will happen rather than what has happened. After all wouldnt it be easier to change the future than change the past? Or maybe we should read todays paper next week, giving the news time to catch up to written articles.All in all, I would say there would be reason for concern if the video had surfaced on Sunday.

I'm not following the logic. the guy pulls into a mostly empty parking lot, parks right next to a car, then is he getting ready to go in and see's the purse; or does he just get out of his car and head straight for the purse? I think this guy knew the purse was there. and that gray car is pretty new. new car drivers aren't your typical purse snatchers. I need more information!!

Just in case you don't read threaded remarks:

@LadyJ- most all comments are much nicer that Smitty's remarks- particularly if it involves law enforcement in anyway.
