Police seek prayer meeting purse snatchers

A trip to her church's prayer meeting has turned into a financial nightmare for Stephanie Donley.

Donley told police that her purse was stolen at church on Dec. 30.

That same day, Donley's debit card was used at several local businesses including Prairie Avenue Liquor, Wal-Mart and Loaf & Jug.

Pueblo Police have released a surveillance photo of two suspects believed to have used the card. A child who appeared to be approx. 8 years old accompanied the suspects. It is believed the suspects were driving a SUV. Because it was late and snowing the night the suspects went on their shopping spree the color or make of the SUV could not be determined.

If you have information on these suspects, call Pueblo Crime Stoppers 542-STOP (542-7867). Your information could earn you a cash reward.
