Video, tips help nab purse-snatching suspect

Jun 29, 2010 12:26:00 PM - thestate.com
Newberry County authorities have arrested a man they say is the suspect seen in a video snatching an elderly woman's purse in Little Mountain.

Gary Lee Kinsler, 36, Forest Hills Boulevard, Prosperity, is charged with common law robbery in the case. He was charged as a result of tips and the video evidence, the Newberry County Sheriff's Office said.

Around 7:22 p.m. June 5, a woman was approached by a man as she got out of her car. She told police the man asked for directions, then pushed her into the door of her car, grabbed her purse and ran.

After investigators released surveillance video, several residents reported recognizing the suspect and contacted Crime Stoppers. Authorities said a suspect they identified as Kinsler broke into a mail receptacle at the Prosperity Post Office and was arrested June 20 by the Newberry Police Department when he attempted to cash a stolen check from that burglary.

Kinsler was in jail Tuesday with bond set at $50,000.
