An open letter to a purse snatcher in Tampa



It's Your Times is the St. Petersburg Times' community journalism site, where you write the news and share your views. Today, Larissa Straub-Yates of New Kensington, Pa., addresses a woman who stole her purse from Tampa International Airport.

"It was nice of you to explain to the others that watched you find it that you were going to take it to the information desk so that it could be properly returned to me," Straub-Yates wrote. "Unfortunately, I guess you were unable to locate the desk and instead deposited it in the trash can in the ladies restroom."

"And since you now have my camera too, I hope you enjoy the priceless photographs that my husband and I took on our honeymoon cruise we had just returned from in the Caribbean."
