Meridian police are warning women about keeping an eye on their purses while they're shopping.
Police say they've had several instances of purses being snatched from shopping carts in recent days, usually when the shopper had only looked away for just a moment.
Police advise that you put your purse on your arm or bury it in with your merchandise in the cart, to make it more difficulty for would-be thieves to take.
