SEATTLE (AP) - Forget all those jokes about cops and doughnuts. Seattle officers stayed focused on the crime as they chased a stolen purse suspect through a doughnut shop and out into the street.

Police say the woman next tried to hide in an open shipping container but officers found her, took her into custody and returned the purse to its owner.

They were alerted Friday afternoon when the victim called to say she’d found her previously stolen purse listed for sale on Craigslist. The purse owner had arranged to meet the seller in front of a Krispy Kreme shop. When police arrived, the woman with the purse hightailed it through the shop.
