Woman's purse stolen during workout

A woman went to work out, and wound up having her finances worked over by a thief.

It happened May 12th at the Whitesburg Baptist Recreation Facility on Whitesburg Drive.

The victim came to walk on an indoor track. She set her purse on a window, and while she was walking around the track, a thief walked off with her purse.

There were several pictures taken of the suspect as he wandered around the building for about an hour.

Several church members noticed him going from one area to another that day, but nobody recognized him.

One witness eventually saw him running out of the building, holding a black purse, jumping into a vehicle and quickly driving away.

With your help, though, this man will just as quickly be heading to jail.

Call Huntsville Area Crime Stoppers at 256-53-Crime.

You'll remain anonymous and could be eligible for up to a thousand dollars.
