Purse Snatcher Faces Two Charges

The alleged purse snatcher is jailed on two charges. Tyler police arrested Daniel Todd Taylor Tuesday after he fled from a convenient store parking lot with a stolen purse.

Witnesses, who saw Taylor swipe the purse from a parked SUV, recorded a partial license plate number and called authorities.

Tyler police chased Taylor's truck to Lanes Chapel Methodist Church parking lot on Old Jacksonville, where he surrendered.

He's charged with burglary of a motor vehicle and evading arrest in a vehicle. Police hope a search of Taylor's truck will help them determine whether he was involved in several other purse snatchings.
