Trending Tuesday: Ladies and purses — beware — those big purses are making you big targets. Pare down to the essentials when you are out running errands. We have had two reports of women pushed down for their purses in the Foothills Area Command this month. Be aware of your surroundings, who is around you and take a scan before you hop out of that car to be safer. It’s best to only carry the essentials for your errand.
