Yesterday, the police arrested an 68-year-old woman for stealing purses in Brooklyn eateries this month.
According to police, Hannah Harris, first struck on June 1, when she hit the Tea Lounge on Union Street in Park Slope. At around 11 p.m., cops say Harris took an "unattended purse" from a table.
Then, on June 22, at around 10:20 p.m., Harris, allegedly took a 45-year-old woman's purse from Mullanes Bar & Grille in Fort Greene before fleeing. Here's video from that incident—you can see her take the purse off the chair where the woman (with child on her lap) is sitting!
Harris, who lives on Warren Street, was charged with two counts of grand larcenies and one count of criminal possession of stolen property.
