A Diner's Wallet Is Lifted And More Radnor Thefts

See some of the crimes that took place last week in Radnor.

Watch your wallet when dining out

A woman dining at in Villanova reported that three credit cards were taken out of her purse while she was dining there on May 23.

The theft was captured on security camera. A witness said he saw two men sitting in the table next to the victim. One of the men was “virtually back-to-back” with her.

The witness said he saw the removal of the purse, but thought it belonged to one of the men, because one of them had had a bag with him.

What is the matter with people? By now they should know to keep their purse close to them whether they place their foot through the handles/straps while it's on the floor, at the movies, etc. Also when food shopping, put the child strap through the purse straps. And money stolen from an unlocked car - shame on the car owner and good for the theif! Where's the common sense?

Carol, Part of why I think it's important for Radnor Patch post these stories is because I hope they remind people to be on guard when they are out in public, even in our lovely town of Wayne.
