POLICE are warning members of the public to be on their guard against purse-snatchers following thefts in two supermarkets.

A woman had her purse stolen from her handbag, which was hanging from her trolley, in the Tesco store in Bathgate at about 12.20pm on Thursday.

At around 1pm on the same day, a woman’s purse was stolen from her bag in her trolley in the Asda in Livingston. In both cases the victims were distracted by men asking about various products in the store.
