PESARO, Italy, July 15 (UPI) -- Italian police said an 88-year-old woman with a history of petty theft was caught attempting to steal a woman's purse at a weekly market in Pesaro.

Authorities said a recent increase in reports of pickpocketing led to a heightened police presence at the market Tuesday, and one of the officers spotted the elderly woman, identified as Filomena Barbetta, lifting a purse out of a woman's bag, the ANSA news agency reported Wednesday.
