Teens Steal Purse from Woman's Shopping Cart, Police Say

Theft apparently occurred Thursday afternoon at the Lower Macungie Walmart.

Two teens stole a woman's purse from her shopping cart Thursday afternoon, ran out of the store, hopped into a car and drove away, police say.

The theft apparently occurred at the Walmart at 1091 Mill Creek Road in Lower Macungie.

A state police fax includes the store address but not the store name. 1091 Mill Creek is Walmart's address, but it's also the address of other nearby stores.

The victim was a 29-year-old woman with an Allentown address, the fax says. But it does not say how much money or what other items were in the purse. The theft occurred at 5:52 p.m.

The fax describes the thieves as 16-18-year-old males. One wore dark jeans and a dark jacket. A clothing description for the other teen was not listed.

The teens were last seen getting into an older model black Saturn sedan and driving out of the parking lot.

Anyone with information is asked to call Trooper Matthew Tonitis of state police at Fogelsville at 610-395-1438.
