Ripping off mourners

Stealing purses is never a good career choice, but stealing purses at cemeteries is downright despicable. People tend to get mad at you for doing that.
A couple of burglars stole a purse from a car parked at San Fernando Cemetery on Saturday afternoon, but they didn't get far with it.

Several witnesses jumped into their cars and chased the burglars for a few miles. The chase ended at the corner of Calaveras and Buena Vista when the burglars crashed into a man in a pickup truck.

That crash caused the pickup truck to hit a utility pole, which then fell on top of the truck. The driver was not badly hurt.

The witnesses then began chasing the burglars on foot and helped officers catch one of them. He was charged with burglary of a vehicle. The purse was returned to its owner.

And a very hearty "Thank you" goes out to the good guys of San Antonio who helped capture the burglar.
