Woman charged in $18k purse snatching case
Porsche Anderson, 22, arrested on theft charge
SAN ANTONIO – A woman has been arrested after she was accused of stealing more than $18,000 worth of property.
Live Oak police arrested Porsche Anderson, 22, Wednesday in connection with the theft last month.
Another woman filed a report with police, saying that she met Anderson June 27 at Bikini Sports Bar & Grill in the 13800 block of Interstate 35, according to an arrest warrant affidavit.
The alleged victim said she and Anderson struck up a friendship and exchanged phone numbers.
However, she soon realized that both Anderson and her designer purse, which contained three smaller designer bags, an iPad 2 and jewelry, had disappeared.
She told police the stolen property was valued at more than $18,000, the affidavit stated.
Investigators said they used the phone number Anderson had given the woman to track her down. Anderson is charged with theft.
