    Did you ever notice that there is always a sizeable amount of cash when purses are stolen from unlocked cars? Last week it was like $700. Really?? Who leaves their purse in an unlocked car to begin with? Who carries that kind of cash these days? Ever heard of debit cards? Anyone who leaves a purse in a car either locked or unlocked is asking to have it stolen.
