It sucks when it happens and it made me feel so angry and violated. Glad you got photos, hopefully they help find and get the person. My experience with the police (4D) and AUSA were very good, never had any issues, they loved that I had the video. I didn’t have to testify or anything like that, never had to go into the police station or to court.
I actually saw her one day in the summer before she was charged and spoke with her…not about her being a thief, just about things in general. Clearly, the woman had issues. I didn’t call the cops to come get her, I figured that it was likely that she would get hers in time. And she did.
