A purse snatcher is on the loose tonight. Around noon today, police say a man stole a woman's purse while she was getting gas at the Valero station on Loop 323 and Highway 31.
Police say he later used the woman's credit card at Super1 Foods on the North Loop.
When police arrived, the man took off on foot.
After a short manhunt, police gave up the search, but did find the man's car which they discovered was stolen.
If you have any information on the man's whereabouts call Tyler Police.
