Crime Stoppers 2/20 Purse Snatching

Lexington police say a man picked up more than just a prescription at a Walmart pharmacy on November 2nd of last year.
Police say a woman was using the blood pressure machine at the pharmacy.
Detective Carol Simms says, "She put her purse under the seat of the blood pressure station."
The woman left the station without her purse. That's when police say a man picking up a prescription took a seat at the station and eventually stole the purse.
"Walmart officials found the purse when they were cleaning up some of the area behind Walmart; stolen in that was her checkbook and some of her credit cards," Simms says.
Check out the video to the right so you can help police identify the man.
