First the man moved the chairs as though he was expecting other people, or was just trying to get more comfortable. In reality, he seemingly positioned his own chair so the purse of the woman sitting behind him was exactly where he wanted it.
Then the man seemingly fumbled with his jacket, using the article of clothing to conceal how he was rummaging through the woman's purse. The theft was both surreptitious and, once you know what he is doing, appallingly brazen.
Police are urging anyone with information to call 972-941-5555.
