Troy woman steals purse, mails back to owner

Posted:

TROY, N.Y.—A Troy woman was arrested for Petit Larceny on Monday after a week long investigation.

Patricia Robinson, 47, was observed on surveillance cameras at a price chopper taking the victim’s purse out of a shopping cart in the parking lot.

Four days later, the stolen purse was returned by mail to the victim, without the $400 in cash that was inside.

When questioned by troopers, Robinson admitted to taking the purse and mailing it back. She is expected in court at a later date.
