The proprietor of Laundry Time, Mr. Abe Shapiro, tells TLS the swift action of police led to the recovery of the wallet, which contained the victim’s identifications as well.
With the surveillance camera capturing a clear photo of the suspect (not shown in video below) and suspect’s license plate, police officers Rodney Youmans and Ralph Hatt were immediately able to track down the suspect at her home.
Once confronted, the suspect admitted to the crime, and showed police where she had dumped the empty wallet.
The money, and other items were returned to the victim, who declined pressing charges.
“The officers did a great job,” Shapiro says.
