(Newswatch Group/File)

PRESCOTT – A forgetful moment for a woman turned into an opportunity for a thief at a local store.

The woman had accidentally left her purse at a store in Prescott on Tuesday last week (March 15) and when she went back to get it, it was gone.

Grenville County O.P.P. said a man had left with the purse after slipping it in his jacket.

A 37-year-old man from Prescott was later arrested and charged.

The woman was able to get back her purse and its contents – except for the cash.
