The day before Christmas Eve was no different. As sandy knelt before her son's grave in Seatac, detectives say a man stole her purse.

When Sandy got to her car, her purse was gone and Sheriff's Deputies say the suspect (in surveillance video) used Sandy's card to make some strange purchases.

"The first credit card he used was at a 7/11. He got a movie out of the Redbox and he rented 'Mission Impossible. Also an empty gas can, duct tape and a whole bunch of goodies trying to charge 56 dollars and change," says Sandy.

Deputies believe the same suspect violently robbed a convenience store just after midnight on the 22nd.

"I want to get this guy because you don`t know what he`s gonna do the next time," says Sandy.

If you have any information call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS. You can remain anonymous and you could be eligible for a reward of up to one thousand dollars.
