Drive-by Purse-Snatching Caught on Tape

Police in Grove City, Ohio hope surveillance video will help them catch a purse-snatcher who dragged a woman at least ten feet across a parking lot.

Cops say the victim, 61, was walking through a Walmart parking lot when a woman pulled up in a dark-colored SUV and asked for directions.

When the victim turned away to point out directions, the robber grabbed her purse and started driving away, dragging her at least 10 feet!

The victim fell and suffered a broken shoulder, police say.
