RENSSELAER, N.Y. -- A Rensselaer man who stole a women's pocketbook from a shopping cart in the days before Christmas has been arrested.

During their investigation of the theft, officers identified James Karlquist, 22, of Washington Avenue, through people who know him, after surveillance tape of the theft was broadcast on local news television.

In the tape, Karlquist's pickup truck could be seen as he drove up to the shopping cart and lifted the purse. Other witnesses stepped forward in support of what the surveillance tape shows.

Karlquist was booked at police headquarters late Thursday afternoon on charges of Grand Larceny 4th-Degree and Petit Larceny. He was arraigned in Town Court and released to Probation Department Day Reporting pending his next court appearance.
