Husband helps police track down stolen purse

After a purse was taken from a woman at a bar, her husband trailed the alleged thief until police caught up with them a block away.

The theft apparently happened around midnight Monday, when a purse and a camera were taken from a woman at a hotel bar in the 1000-block of 18th Street.

The victim’s husband followed a suspect down the street until police intercepted them about a block away.

Officers say the suspect had the stolen camera on her, and she was arrested. Because she was also intoxicated, they took her to the Brandon Correctional Centre for the night, as well.

A 47-year-old Brandon woman is to appear in court on July 4, on a charge of possession of stolen property.
