LA HABRA, CA – A California purse snatcher got bagged by a couple of Good Samaritans, and some of it was caught on camera. Security video at a La Habra car lot recorded a guy on the run after stealing a purse from this 82-year-old woman as she walked home from church. But here’s where it gets better. The camera captures a car driving up with a couple of guys inside. They see the snatcher carrying what appears to be a 7-foot long piece of rebar and the woman’s purse. That’s when the men got out of the car and tune him up in the car lot.
