Saline County Jail

A store video leads to the arrest of a Salina woman for allegedly stealing a purse.

Salina Police Captain Chris Trochek says that a purse was stolen from a cart at Walmart late last week. Contents of the purse included $3,000 in cash.

Trochek says that a suspect vehicle, and a suspect, were identified by using store surveillance video.

Police arrested 58-year-old Molly Petersen in connection with the case on Tuesday. She could face charges that include felony theft.

Trochek says that the $3,000 in cash that was in the purse was not recovered.

Hey Trochek could it be because there was not 3000 in the purse to begin with? How many Walmart shoppers carry that much cash on them to begin with?
