Hunt for purse thief who targeted OAP
Police are still hunting for a cruel crook who stole an 85-year-old Alva woman’s purse while she was out shopping.
Thieves are thought to have targeted the woman while she was in the British Red Cross store on Murray Place at around 2.15pm last Friday.
Inspector Donna Bryans of Stirling police said: “This is a particularly horrible crime which can have a huge impact on vulnerable, elderly people who are just going about their business.”
She asked anyone with information to contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
