Police are looking for a man who allegedly stole a purse out of a woman’s shopping cart around 7:15 p.m. Saturday at CVS Pharmacy on U.S. 90.

Police said he possibly had tattoos on his arms. Police said he left CVS in a four-door, white vehicle with a Louisiana license plate. Witnesses wrote down a partial plate number: “ZT.”
