Police are searching for a man who stole a 74-year-old woman's purse from the trunk of her vehicle while she was at a funeral home making arrangements for her late mother.
The elderly woman, who did not want to be identified, told News 2 she did not realize the trunk of car didn't shut all the way when she placed her purse inside of it.
Later, while at a restaurant she discovered her purse, credit cards and checks were all missing.
“I've cried every day,” she said. “We come home and I'm shaking, just shaking all over. I was scared to death and felt violated.”

In surveillance videos from a gas station and CVS pharmacy, the suspect is seen using a credit card that was stolen from a woman's purse at an O'Charley's restaurant.
The unidentified suspect is believed to be driving a white Chevy Impala.
