Grocery Bagger Chases Down Thief To Get Customer's Purse Back


Good morning. I'm David Greene. Juwone Scott was bagging groceries in Shreveport, La. He was chatting when someone snatched a customer's purse. That would-be thief must not have known that Scott is an athlete. He was a weightlifter in the Special Olympics USA games last year. Shreveport TV station KTBS reports he chased down the man and got the purse back. The man ran off. A few days later, police say, they arrested him. Juwone Scott was back to work the next day.
