Police are looking for a man they said stole a woman's purse from the passenger seat of her vehicle while she was placing items she bought from a store into her car.

Officers were called to a Walgreens at 3505 University Blvd. W. on Tuesday.

They said the woman had been shopping at the store and was putting her purchased items into her car when a man ran to the passenger side of her silver Jeep, stole her purse and ran away.

Anyone with any information about the man's identity or whereabouts is asked to call the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office at 904-630-0500 or Crime Stoppers at 866-845-TIPS.
