Police said a woman had her purse snatched at the EPB Credit Union on McCallie Avenue.

She said she was exiting her vehicle when she was approached by three black males.

The woman said the person in front grabbed her handbag and the other two helped him.

A man who witnessed the incident gave chase, but lost the trio.

A female witness said she had seen three black males wearing hoodies sitting on a low brick wall at the parking lot.

The purse included $110 cash, an IPhone, a pair of eyeglasses, a checkbook and debit and credit cards.

A female resident of the Chateau Royale Apartments said she went inside "for a very brief time" and left her car unlocked.

It was long enough that someone broke into her 2005 model and took a $30 gift card, a cell phone, a $400 fur coat and a $300 black leather coat. They also got some pills.

A witness reported seeing a tall black male in an older model white sedan in the parking lot.

He said he was assured by the IRS that any charges against him would be dropped.

Roy Exum: How We Learned To Play

A couple of years ago I was reading a fascinating story that asserted the “Little Rascals” taught generations of children how to play with each other.
