— Tips from the public led Raleigh police to identify and arrest a suspect accused of stealing a woman's purse at a grocery store earlier this month.

William Clifton-Carroll Bullock, 33, was charged Wednesday with larceny from a person and obtaining property by false pretense.

Police said Bullock snatched a woman's purse from her shopping cart at Harris Teeter, at 3201 Edwards Mill Road, on March 6 and then left the store.
