Second pocketbook stolen in two weeks

LIVERMORE FALLS — Police are investigating the theft of a pocketbook Wednesday from an apartment on Main Street, police Chief Ernest Steward Jr. said Thursday.

It is the second time a purse has been stolen since March 17, Steward said.

A senior citizen reported a “young gentleman” came to her door and asked for a glass of water at about 2 p.m. Wednesday, he said. About 15 to 20 minutes later, the woman realized her pocketbook was missing, he said.

The man was described as having blond hair with a dark-colored, hooded sweatshirt and between 18 and 19 years old, Steward said.

On March 17, a woman's purse was reported stolen from a car as volunteers were loading daffodils for Daffodil Days at the Eaton Memorial United Methodist Church on Knapp and Church streets, he said.

A volunteer saw a man described as between 18 to 20 years old with blond hair running from the area, Steward said.

Way to go Donna on the Description and Shame on the Editorial Department for not Catching the Error. Between 19 and 19 years old huh?

A 5th Grader could have spotted that error. So nice to we have such good proof readers at the Sun-Journal! NOT!
