Caught on Security Camera: Thief Steals Purse From Elderly Woman Praying in Florida Church


Authorities say they're looking for a man who stole an 84-year-old woman's purse while she was praying in a church in Florida.

Surveillance video shows a man walking into the small chapel area and sitting down in the back. After a few seconds, he stands and begins to pace. He eventually sneaks up and takes a purse from the chair next to the woman and walks out a nearby door. The woman notices a few moments later and attempts to follow, but the man has already disappeared.

The release says the purse was recovered two days later at a nearby cemetery, but the woman's wallet and money were gone.
