(NOTTAWA TOWNSHIP) – Michigan State Police are investigating the theft of a purse from a vehicle.
Troopers say a woman had parked her vehicle at 5 PM Wednesday near a field on Nottawa and Wasepi Roads. She went out to mow the field and left her 13 and 11 year old sons in the automobile.
The suspect stopped his vehicle on Nottawa Road and walked up to the victim's automobile. He scared the boys, who ran away to alert their mother. The suspect then took the woman's purse and drove away.
The suspect is a white man between 30 and 40 years old. He was wearing a white t-shirt, brown shorts and a black beret style hat. He also had tattoos on his arms, neck and face. The suspect was driving a small, white passenger car with rust along the bottom, and was last seen fleeing south on Nottawa Road.
If anyone has information on this crime, they are asked to contact Trooper Hofmeister at the Michigan State Police Post in Marshall by calling 269-558-0500.
