PBSO: Thieves are targeting women with purses in parking lots


Ladies, hold on to your purses!

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office is investigating two groups who are targeting women in parking lots and taking their purses from them, mainly in the suburban Boynton Beach area. A sheriff’s deputy told the public about the incidents at Wednesday’s Coalition of Boynton West Residential Associations meeting at Valencia Lakes.

There are two groups of people who have been doing this in the District 6 area, which is the suburban Boynton area.

They drive through Walmart and Publix parking lots and snatch the purses from the women.

It’s happened three times in the area. One group has been arrested.

The sheriff’s deputy at the COBWRA meeting encouraged women to hold their purses “like a football” while having it hang on your shoulder.
