KALAMAZOO, Mich.– A Kalamazoo Public Safety officer was in the right place at the right time Thursday evening when he caught a bag snatcher in the act.

A patron was dining outside on the 200 block of South Mall in Kalamazoo when a juvenile suspect grabbed the victim’s bag and began running away with it.

Public Safety Officer Ulberg of the Kalamazoo Police Department was in that area patrolling on foot. Ulberg was able to catch the suspect in the act and arrest him. The victim’s property was safely returned to them.

The juvenile suspect is currently lodged at the Kalamazoo County Juvenile Home on Larceny from Person charges.
