A 28-year-old Jasper man is in the Jefferson County Jail accused of snatching a woman's purse in the Target parking lot in Beaumont.

The act which was recorded by a video camera has made the news and social media for the last week or so with many people seeing the pic.

A judge set no bail on Thursday  for Trent Dion Land because of a previous parole violation.

Land is accused of running up behind the woman in the Target parking lot on Friday.

Police say Land pushed her into a car and snatched her purse from the shopping cart.

Shortly after his arrest, Land told reporters from KFDM that he was trying to take care of his family. However, police investigating the case say Land used credit cards taken from the victim's purse to purchase perfume and other personal items.

Investigators say a Crimestoppers tip led to Land's arrest, and that they located him at an apartment complex where he is facing eviction.
