MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - A New Hampshire woman will have a merrier Christmas after police say a fellow Walmart shopper tackled a man who stole a wallet from her purse.

Manchester police say 51-year-old Rhonda Healey was perusing holiday cards Tuesday when a man took a wallet from the purse she had placed in the child seat of her shopping cart.

The woman noticed the theft and yelled for someone to stop the man.

Forty-five-year-old Richard White answered her distress call, grabbing the suspect’s arm and pinning him to the ground.

Police charged 24-year-old Alan White - who they say is homeless - with theft by unauthorized taking. They also charged him with lying about his identity.

It was unclear whether he has a lawyer.
