A ShopRite customer's purse -- minus cash -- turned up last Thursday after the woman told police it apparenly had been stolen in the grocery store's parking lot, 1975 Black Rock Turnpike.

The woman said she had loaded groceries from her cart into her car and returned home, when she discovered her purse was missing. She searched the vehicle and called the store, but was told no one had turned it in. The woman then returned to the parking and searched for her purse, but could not locate it.

Police said the store later called to report the purse was found in a cart at the back of the store. Missing from the purse was $50 in cash.
