OKLAHOMA CITY – Police are searching for a man accused of snatching a woman’s purse from right under her nose.

It’s something many women do without even thinking about it, but that simple action was enough for an alleged thief.

While shopping at the Belle Isle Walmart, a woman was looking at cosmetics and placed her purse in her shopping cart.

Surveillance cameras were rolling as a young man spotted the purse and made his move.

Authorities say the man grabbed the purse without the victim knowing it, and went through it in the next aisle.
