They Found My Purse!!!!!

Lousiville Metro Police called me this afternoon while I was in the movie theater seeing Transformers with Daniel and Aaron (more on the movie later). Apparently everything is still there except my cell phone and my money ($40). Unfortunately, by the time they got a hold of me it was too late to pick it up today, and the Property Holding room isn't open on weekends, so I won't be able to get my stuff until Monday.

They found it in a Kroger sack, wadded up under some bushes, over 7 blocks from the park! A white man and woman were seen putting it there. Remorse, after taking my money and my phone? Who knows?

I can't believe I'm going to get my purse back!!

PS. More later on my cool new cell phone. It takes pictures, plays music (like an iPod), and can get online! It is soooo fun!

YAY!! Sounds like you made out pretty well, all things considered. What a nice excuse to get a new cell phone, too!

J - w0w… your purse was located. I wonder why it wasn't just tossed into a trash can or dumpster. In essence, the two things of significant value, cash and phone, were taken. I guess a cell phone can be activated by the thief for his or her use. It can likely be sold on the black market.

If you know the code that is required to activate the phone, perhaps your phone can be traced to a new user.

Oh well, is it worth the bother?

I'm so glad it was found. See, things are turning around. :)

Happy to hear you will get your purse, and other stuff, back.   :-)

Good for you. I think that is a good question that brother dave poses. Perhaps someone saw them or had seen them and they panicked?

Well, at least you're getting it back.

Can't wait to hear about your new phone.

The cash and phone can be replaced, but I am always afraid of losing my calendar !
