Citizens ‘seeing, saying something’ leads to purse snatch arrest

YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: Linwood Plaza customers and a local resident led Fort Lee police to a former Long Island high school football player who they said snatched a woman’s purse.”It’s a great example of members of the community seeing something and saying something,” Capt. Keith Bendul told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .

Police set up a perimeter after getting the call this morning and found their suspect near the Palisades Interstate Parkway entrance off Fletcher Avenue.

They brought in their own police dog, Greener, and found the purse snatched from its 52-year-old owner.

Eliano Aubourg, 20, is charged with theft, resisting arrest and hindering apprehension. He’s being held on $20,000 bail in the Bergen County Jail.
