ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – A quick moving Albuquerque police officer caught a purse snatcher late Tuesday night.
APD says Officer Matthew Reeder was at the Walmart on Eubank near I-40 when he heard a commotion and saw 23-year-old Andres Jimenez running through the parking lot.
Witnesses say Jimenez had just ripped the purse from a woman’s neck.
Reeder caught and arrested him.
Reeder was honored back in January for talking a suicidal man out of killing himself.
