ALPENA ― A purse-snatcher identified by store surveillance footage turned herself in at the Alpena County Jail earlier this month, the Michigan State Police reported on Wednesday.

Store cameras caught Brittney Flynn, 20, of Alpena, taking a purse out of the shopping cart of a woman shopping with her daughter on Aug. 10 at the Alpena Walmart, according to police.

Flynn turned herself in after learning of an arrest warrant authorized by the Alpena County Prosecutor’s Office on Sept. 7. She was arraigned in Alpena’s 88th District Court on Tuesday and faces one charge of larceny of $1,000 or more but less than $20,000.
