(Liz Klimas) Drive-by purse snatchings seem to be becoming more common. In April, TheBlaze reported about a woman hanging onto her handbag for dear life as she was dragged by a van through a grocery store parking lot in Florida. Now, a Georgia woman experienced a similar situation, which ultimately lead police on a long-distance, high-speed chase before the suspects were apprehended.
According to WSB-TV, a woman was dragged 300 feet in a Walmart parking lot in Covington County last week when a couple in a red Ford sedan grabbed at her bag and she didn’t let go. My Fox Atlanta reported Covington Police Capt. Ken Malcom explaining further that the 51-year-old woman was actually tangled in her bag and couldn’t let go.
