Madison Police have arrested a suspected purse thief with the help of a quick response from a credit card company.
A 27-year-old Mt. Horeb woman was having dinner with a friend at Cooper's Tavern Saturday night.
Her purse was hanging off the back of a chair, and was snatched by a thief.
She called her credit card companies after realizing it was gone. One company told her that one of her cards was just used at a Park St. restaurant.
Madison Police responded, and found a suspect outside of the Park St. eatery.
Officers say 40-year-old Wallace Weaver had the woman's purse and cell phone. Other items that belonged to the victim were found scattered outside of the restaurant.
