A MUM of two has spoken of her anger after thieves stole a purse containing money for her children’s Christmas presents.

Kerry Parnell was shopping in B&M in Ransomes Europark, Ipswich, on November 9 when she dropped her purse in one of the aisles.

Minutes later she realised it was missing.

“When we couldn’t see it they (the staff) let us look through the CCTV footage,” Ms Parnell said. “It clearly showed a man picking up the purse straight after I had dropped it. It then showed him turning to a woman and placing it in her bag.

“I never usually carry around a lot of money with me, but because I was buying Christmas presents I had about £200 in cash with me.

“I had saved that money and only wanted it to go on presents for the family and for my sons (Daniel, nine, and Bradley, six).”

Ms Parnell, of Sheldrake Drive, urged those with information to contact police on 101.

  • How's about the star put a picture up from the CCTV and you may actually get someone who recognises him ?
