Police charge suspect, 19, in purse theft

Posted: Updated:
SPRING GROVE, Pa. (WHTM) -

Charges have been filed against a suspect after a 43-year-old woman's purse was stolen from her car in Spring Grove.

On the evening of Dec. 28, 2012, a 43-year-old York County resident returned to her vehicle after shopping at the Spring Forge Plaza in the 500 block of North Main Street.

She placed her purse inside her vehicle, closed the car door, and walked her shopping cart back to a cart retrieval area.

As she returned to her vehicle, a man pulled up next to her and opened her car door. He took her purse from the front seat, reentered his vehicle and drove away.

The estimated loss of her purse and its contents was $800.

The victim got the vehicle license plate number as the suspect drove off. Officers tracked the vehicle to a residence in Thomasville and found stolen items.

The owner of the vehicle was not the suspect in the crime.

Following an investigation, authorities identified the suspect as 19-year-old Tyler Livingston of Thomasville. He was charged with theft and receiving stolen property.

Livingston failed to attend his preliminary hearing last week, and the case is bound over to York County Court.
