Woman is victimized within minutes of having purse stolen
LAKEWOOD, Colo. -- Sharon Sandoval says it happened from the time she left the store until she got to her car: someone swiped her purse. She says it was Tuesday, in the parking lot of the Walmart at 2nd Ave. and Wadsworth Blvd. in Lakewood. She realized her purse was gone and immediately called her bank to close her credit card account, but it was already too late. The crooks had used to the card to buy gas; they then tried to charge $500 at a local pawn shop, but by that time, the bank had stopped the card.
