I am happy that this person was apprehended. I was not so lucky.

My wallet was stolen out of my purse at my place of business. My debit/VISA card was used at Best Buy in Dublin to purchase a TV & cell phone for over $1000, within 3 hours of being stolen. If the employees at Best Buy would have carded the MAN that used my(female) card for those purchases I might have my wallet back with my pictures, social security card and other items I can't replace. Not to mention stopped him from using other cards and money he stole from the building. When contacting Best Buy's store manager Mark, I asked how this could possibly happen and he actually had the nerve to say to me that it was against the law to ask for ID in California - WHAT!!! Seriously, because of Best Buy's lack of concern, and this low life criminal that stole my wallet, I will have to continue to monitor my Social Security number as well as my 5 year old sons for many years to come to avoid additional violation from this incident. I know that I should not have had my social security card in my wallet, I have heard the horror stories, so if you are carrying yours in your wallet or purse, please tonight when you get home - TAKE IT OUT!

Hurray to those that stepped up to the plate to help this woman out...I hope they are safe and the injury to the leg will heal without incident.

Merry Christmas!

Hope they sent Rin-Tin-Tin in the "wooded area" to find this joker. Let him have a little fun like he did when the bank robber refused to come out of the backyard shed. He doesn't get to have that much fun riding around in the back of a patrol car all day.
