MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - The victim of a purse snatching has received a Christmas surprise from the Manchester Police.

The manager of the Dunkin’ Donuts inside the Elliot Hospital had her purse stolen Friday. Rebecca St. Laurent said it contained her life savings.

Manchester Police Patrolman’s Association president Ron Chamerblain tells WMUR-TV (https://bit.ly/2hEldgE ) that after seeing a news article about it, he and a group of officers raised $500 in gift cards and $1,000.

More than a dozen officers surprised St. Laurent with the gift cards and a check on Saturday.

St. Laurent said people should know that the police “really care about this community.”

Police are still searching for the suspect.
