    Lost my wallet or it was also stolen in Walmart in northern Maine last spring with a good deal of cash also. It would have been much nicer if person had taken money and returned wallet because it is so hard to replace all cards, insurance, license, etc. I hope these thugs are caught because karma will catch them anyway. Best wishes to the victim and good luck doing all the running around for replacements.

    Back in the thirties they had Bonnie and Clyde. Today, we have Bimbo and Clod. Can we get a picture of her with a joint in her lips and holding a paint ball gun?

    Purse snatching is the act of ripping a purse off a person’s arm, or out of her hands. taking a purse from a shopping cart doesn;t qualify as “snatching”

      It doesn’t really matter how the purse was stolen. What they did was wrong. I hope the contents of this woman’s purse are recovered. It’s probably not such a bad idea to not carry around a lot of cash. It’s a lot easier to moniter how/where a debit/credit card is used than cash – plus a lot of banks have insurance for when stuff like this happens.

    Break the law – no EBT card for you. At least that’s the way it should be. Pull them from the EBT program (if they had legitimately qualified to be part of it in the first place).

    If this was an honest working couple they would have brought the purse to the customer service booth…

    I was at the Brewer Walmart and had my purse in the child seat attached to the seatbelt. I thought that would prevent theft…no, as I reached in to get milk, the woman who was near me with a cart, took my cart and left her empty one. I found her going up the isle, obviously putting her single item into a full cart with a strange purse. I grabbed the cart back and went straight to security. I was told by security that Bangor Police had just called to let them know this woman had been over earlier to the Bangor Walmart pulling the same thing. Who was she? A druggie – and she thought it better to take the whole cart then mess with the seat belt…would take too long. I keep my purse on my shoulder now and let other unsuspecting women know my experience when I see them doing what I used to do. If someone tries to get the purse off my arm…they better run real fast and zig-zag.
