Lee County-- Police want you to beware of holiday thieves. Over the weekend several thefts were reported.

At Wal-Mart in Lee County, a woman's purse was snatched while she loaded packages into her car. Thefts like this are more commonplace during the busy holiday shopping season.

Lee Investigator, Major Geoff Smith says, "If you are shopping at the mall and you put things in your car so they will be patrolling the parking lot like the police trying to prevent them from doing it, looking for what they can steal."

If you leave packages and purses in the car, lock them in the trunk. Also, keep your valuables, like pocketbooks, on you.
