A woman's purse was stolen from the Sedgwick County Courthouse security checkpoint last Wednesday.

Security video shows a woman taking Kristy Henderson's purse off the conveyor belt of the X-Ray machine.

"This is the first time that I know of that we had a purse stolen right there in front of the courthouse. It's pretty brave because there are armed security folks right there in close proximity to the lobby of the courthouse,” Lt. Dave Mattingly with the Sedgwick County Sheriff's Office said.

"Immediately I started to freak out because everything is in my purse, my driver's license, everything I think of,” victim Kristy Henderson said.

Sheriff's Investigators asks anyone with any information on who committed the crime, to call 660-5300 or Crimestoppers at 267-2111.
