HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

So how long does it take you to choose an item from a grocery store shelf?

Apparently it was plenty of time for a crook to snatch a woman's purse without her realizing it. Here's what happened in this week's Huntsville Area Crime Stoppers.

A woman with a plaid shirt and light colored jacket is seen on surveillance camera as she was leaving the Kroger on Oakwood Avenue November 12.

If you look closely, you can see a purse tucked underneath her left arm.

The problem, it's not her purse.

So let's fill in the blanks.

The victim had turned to pick up an item off one the shelves. In a matter of seconds, her purse was stolen from her buggy.

The picture we have of the suspected purse thief isn’t the clearest of looks.

But it’s certainly clear enough to identify and have her arrested.

And it’s certainly clear enough to put some cash in your wallet.
