A 16-year-old has been arrested after being caught on surveillance video stealing a purse from an elderly woman at Walmart, according to police in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.
The store surveillance video showed the teen entering the store and following an elderly woman to her car. When she looked away, he grabbed the purse from her carriage and ran off. He then returned to the store and used items from the purse to make a purchase.
Acting on a tip from the video, police were able to find the suspect at his house. The teen's name will not be released because he is a juvenile. He has been charged with theft and will be petitioned by juvenile court at a later date for arraignment.
