CUMMING, Ga. — A man suspected of stealing a woman's purse ran to a nearby hotel to hide, according to a Cumming Police incident report.
At about 1 p.m. Feb. 10, officers were told the suspect took the purse from a woman at Home Depot, 1000 Market Place Boulevard, and was seen running to the Hampton Inn off Buford Highway.
Forsyth County Sheriff's deputies located the suspect, who had barricaded himself in one of the hotel rooms.
Officers were going to return the stolen purse, but the loss prevention officer at Home Depot said there was no "purse snatching."
The suspect and a woman were instead shoplifting.
They were caught shoplifting and the man took the woman's purse, which had the stolen items inside it, and ran.
The loss prevention officer said the stolen items fell out of the purse.
The suspect ran across Buford Highway, took off his jacket and threw it into a trashcan at the BP gas station before hiding out at the Hampton Inn.
The two were cited for misdemeanor shoplifting and given a criminal trespass warning.

Well the ad was posted the 22nd and the comment made by Chris in Cummings indicates: "the purse feel out of the purse"? From what I am reading it indicates: "the purse fell out of the purse". So unless this has been edited (which I do not believe it has) I would get glasses Chris.

Geeze anytime you have enough time to point out simple human errors (typos) you need something additional to fill your time because obviously you are bored!
