So sorry to hear this.When i go shopping I leave purse in my LOCKED vehicle out of sight and if by chance I take it in the store I DO NOT leave it unattended.When putting groceries in my car the first thing that goes in my vehicle is my purse instead of making it the LAST item to go in my car.But...I always keep my keys with me and my cell phone so if I am approached I have what I need to get help.
