Police investigating theft of woman’s purse at Morris McDonald’s

Morris police are investigating a theft that occurred from a customer of the Morris McDonald’s last week.

On Feb. 19 a woman reported that she had left her purse at McDonald’s. When she returned, it was gone, but she noticed a man leaving who looked to have her purse, said Chief Brent Dite.

When she tried to confront the man, and attempted to grab him, he fled the scene.

The purse was recovered at a different location, said Dite. Police are investigating and gathering video from area businesses. The investigation has resulted in a lead, said Dite, but no one has been arrested yet.
