A WOMAN'S purse was snatched out of her hands while she was shopping.

The woman was walking away from the Co-op store in Ferriston at 8.40pm on Monday, June 9, when a man took her purse and ran off.

The thief is described as white, in his mid-20s, 6ft tall and of slim build.

He wore a black hooded top, black bottoms, black trainers and carried a rucksack. A man matching this description was believed to have been seen outside the Co-op about 45 minutes before the theft.

The black and purple leather purse had a ‘Bailey’ logo on. It contained cash, bank cards and a bus pass.
