Alleged Purse Snatcher Arrested In La Salle

Posted by wlpo on December 1, 2011

A purse snatcher targeting women leaving bars last month may have been caught.

Christopher Coleman of La Salle was arrested at his home for two counts of robbery and possession of cocaine. Investigators had been doing surveillance of Coleman after women had their purses stolen a week apart at Jake’s Pour House and the Dugout. The thefts happened late at night.

Coleman was taken to the county jail. His rap sheet includes charges of reckless homicide, forgery and theft. He was on probation when picked up this week.
