A 24-year old female hospital worker had her work bag and expensive Louis Vitton brand purse stolen from her SUV outside a home.  According to police, the thief after openings the bags apparently had no use for a stethoscope or any of the other miscellaneous items inside. 


Nothing was missing when the bag and purse were soon found along a tree line a short distance away, police said.  It appears the thief failed to recognize opportunity, though, because the high society purse was valued at more than $1,300.
