Purse Stolen 14 Years Ago Returned To Shocked Owner

A purse thought to have been lost in the sands of time, or at least to a thief, was returned to its owner after 14 years missing.

The purse, almost untouched, was returned to Lisa Hall Mazzaglia, a resident of Seabrook, New Hampshire, after it was stolen from her over a decade ago, according to UPI.

Mazzaglia remembers the day it was stolen like it was yesterday. In December, 2002, she was shopping for some Christmas presents to donate to charity when she turned her back for a minute. Her purse was stolen from her cart as she was loading items into her car when she wasn’t looking, and she figured she had lost the purse, which contained a wallet, some receipts, and other items, for good.
