Wallet thief nabbed in California
January 30, 2016
When California authorities arrested a 29-year-old woman for stealing a purse, they found a stolen wallet that belonged to a woman in Summit County, according to the Summit County Sheriff’s Office.
Placer County Sheriff’s deputies arrested Latoya Annette McCurn and preliminarily charged her with robbery and receiving stolen property, according to a press release. McCurn remains in custody. Her bail has been set at $50,000.
On Jan. 11, Summit County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a Snyderville Basin-area gas station after dispatch received a report from a woman that her wallet was stolen while she was pumping fuel. Video from the gas station provided detectives with a description of the suspect, who was driving a vehicle with an out-of-state license plate, sparking an investigation.
Several days later, Placer County dispatch received a report from a woman that her purse was stolen while she was pumping fuel and the suspect assaulted her when she tried to confront her about it. An off-duty police officer reported the incident and McCurn was arrested later that day.
Deputies found the wallet that was stolen from the victim in Summit County and items that were reported stolen from victims in Georgia in McCurn’s possession.
The Sheriff’s Office will be obtaining a warrant and seeking extradition for McCurn, the release states.
