 "Shows me to never be nice to people again," an 81-year-old crime victim told police Tuesday afternoon after her cash and check book were stolen from her purse. She had left it on a table at KFC, 2958 E. Washington Ave., where she is a well-liked and regular customer. She had just met a woman who told the octogenarian she was homeless. The Good Samaritan offered to buy the woman a meal. While she was getting the food, the suspect got into the victim's purse. The older woman sat with the suspect for a bit, before the suspect departed. The victim was leaving shortly thereafter and that's when realized her property was missing. KFC staff members had a feeling something was amiss and had kept an eye on the suspect, who was now across the street. One employee went out to confront her as police were called. Ultimately, cash and checkbook were returned to the victim as the suspect went to jail. She said did say to the arresting officer that she was sorry for what she had done.
