Police Warn of Wallet Snatcher at Local Stores

Tyler Police are warning women to be on guard against someone stealing wallets from purses.  In three cases -- one in the past week -- women shopping at different stores reported a well dressed black male approaching them, asking about products.

They were distracted from their carts, while someone else apparently lifted the wallets from their purses. Police say when you're not using your purse, keep it closed... and close to your body. If you have any information on the wallet snatcher, call Tyler Police.
