I'm sorry to hear this happened.

Was the person caught who stole/attempted to steal your bag?

No she was not the security officer did not give chase because he said once outside cvs its out of his jurisdiction and once i was notified she was almost 2 blocks away

Hello again!

Unfortunately since the person was not apprehended, there is not much else that can be done at this point in time.

The most you can do is file a police report (which you've done), and then wait to see if the police are able to locate this person, or recover your bag.

I hope that helps!

Please let me know if you have any other questions. Also, please take a moment to rate me using the stars at the top of the page, as it's the only way experts are compensated for our time on the site. I do not receive a salary here at JustAnswer, and am only compensated for my time after receiving a rating of 3 stars or more (5 stars are always appreciated). The question won't close after rating, so you can still ask follow-up questions after. Thanks, ***** ***** it!

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
