A Prescott man has been arrested after stealing a woman’s purse. Just before 1:00 in the afternoon last Tuesday, March 15th, a woman left her purse behind as she left a Prescott store. She returned shortly afterward to find her purse was gone.
Investigation showed a man left the store with the purse and was seen putting it into his jacket and leaving the area. Police found and arrested the 37-year-old man and the purse minus the money was recovered. He will appear in Brockville court to face charges of theft.
