Witness helps cops nab thief

An elderly woman is robbed, but the thief is quickly caught thanks to a good Samaritan who witnessed the crime.

Precious Sanders stole the 91-year-old woman's wallet as she was getting into her car in the parking lot of the Rite Aid on Philadelphia Pike in Claymont.

A passerby followed the suspect as she fled, and phoned police.

Sanders was caught by police and charged with third degree burglary and theft under $1,500 where the victim is 62 or older.

She's being held at Baylor Women's Correctional Institute on $10,000 secured bail.
