Thieves steal woman's purse at Florida gas station

BROWARD COUNTY, Fla. – Broward County deputies are warning people about thieves who are stealing women's purses while they're pumping gas.

The Broward County Sheriff's Office released surveillance video from September 26, showing a woman at the pump on the passenger side of her vehicle.

Two men in a silver four-door Toyota Camry pulled up next to her and waited.

Once the woman was distracted, one man crouched down between the two vehicles, opened her driver side door and pulled out her handbag.

They were gone in a matter of seconds.

BCSO said the investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
