Not exactly sure how this all went down, but years ago a police officer friend lent this advice to my mother and me: when shopping with your purse, if you are going to put it in the child seat area, use the seat belt straps that are provided for the child and loop them through your purse straps and lock. This helps keep your purse with the cart, giving the purse snatcher a surprise so they can't just snatch, grab and run.

Unless you have a child in the child seat area.... Still, good tip!
