Everett Police arrested accused purse snatcher, Bryce Knapp-Mills, on Monday — after receiving a tip from someone who saw our WMW Facebook posting about his alleged crime.

The video also aired on Q13 Fox News at 9 and 10 last week.

He was identified on video surveillance stalking a 71 year old woman in a Safeway at 1715 Broadway Ave in Everett. Detectives say he grabbed her purse from her shopping cart and took off.

Knapp-Mills was nice enough to provide a written confession. Detectives say the woman who had her purse stolen was very excited and said to everyone, “thank you”.
