Helped catch a purse snatcher today
Not bragging,just want to remind everyone it can happen even in a small town.My wife and I were eating at a fast food joint ,at noon,I look up and a 20 something white male is running with a purse!I saw him drop the purse,look back, and then take of toward IH-10.I got up and went outside to see a lady picking up the purse.I asked what happened and she shakily told me the man had grabbed her purse when she was loading groceries.I immediately called 911.While I was talking the lady walked toward a large supermarket even though I told her I was on the phone with the police,I think she was a bit shocked by the whole thing.I followed her while my wife and another customer went to at least spot the robber for the police.I caught up with the lady and told her the guy might come back around,so we needed to wait for the police.I applaud the local police officers.It only took about a minute from the time I saw the man and asked the lady what happened and called 911.In less than 5 minutes the officers had the man cuffed a block away and had a female accomplice that was waiting for him in a car.An officer picked up the lady and took her to identify the man.I told the officer I would wait at the cafe for him if he needed a statement.Since he had a K-9 dog in the back seat there was certainly was no room for me.The lady and officer returned to the cafe so the officer could take our statements.The officer also gave the lady a handful of her credit cards he retrieved from the young man's pocket.The officer told me this man was a "regular",so I hope they put him away for a time.Remember,it can happen even in a small town.

Congratulations sir! Deed well done, nobody got hurt and justice was served.
You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.
