CLEAR LAKE – A Mason City woman is accused of snatching a purse at a popular local watering hole and now faces a felony after apparently using the credit cards inside it.

Shalonda Ackerman, 35 years old from Mason City, was arrested after an extensive investigation by the Clear Lake Police. Ackerman is alleged to have taken an unattended purse and its contents from Rookies, on Main Ave in Clear Lake, on August 17, 2019 at around 10:55 PM.

Inside the purse were credit cards and a diamond wedding ring valued at approximately $2,950.00. Several purchases were made in Mason City using some of the cards inside the purse.

Ackerman was charged with:

– Theft 2nd Degree – A Class D Felony

– Two Counts of Unauthorized Use of a Credit Card Under $1,500.00 – Aggravated Misdemeanor (each count)

The investigation is ongoing and the department will not release the names of victims.

The Clear Lake Police would like to remind everyone to secure personal items in your car and while out in public.

    Yep scum theiving trash. They prey on the stupid. Bet this lady wishes she had left her wedding ring on, or at least thought watching her purse with it in was important. What a way for the husband to find out his wife is lurking for other men and the wedding ring was no value to her. Glad the thief was caught and glad this wife was exposed … karma at its best.

      Yeah stupid thief got caught. Theres no wondering why, she’s a thief…. you leave a purse unattended while doing god knows what, the thieving trash is going to take it. Bet the husband is wondering why the wedding ring was in the purse and why this lady didn’t think it was important to keep it on and keep track of her and his valuables. Pretty sure the credit cards are tied to him also beings they are married. Thieves prey on the stupid.

    I wonder why the woman who had her purse stolen would have a wedding ring in her purse and then leave it all “unattended”?

      Or maybe the purse owner padded the claim of a ring to the cops

        Probably could have padded the claim adding the ring. She was stupid enough to leave her stuff unattended for a thief to grab, she’s probably stupid enough to try to pad a claim.
