Serial Purse Snatcher Sought (VIDEO)
A serial purse-snatcher is at-large in the French Quarter, according to police. The man swiped his first bag last night in the 1000-block of St. Philip St., shortly after midnight. The incident was caught on surveillance video. A similar incident occurred early this morning in the 900-block of St. Louis St., and another in the 800-block of Orleans Avenue. Police believe the same suspect committed the three crimes.
