"My purse, wallet, three of my friend's wallets in there, cell phone, everything."
She remembered he actually filled out a visitor's card, leaving behind plenty of info, including his own cell phone number.
It was just a matter of time before Bentonville police tracked down the suspect: 28-year-old Joshua Tippie near the Pinnacle Hills exit in Rogers.

According to police, Tippie also punched a patrol car. He is currenty in Benton County Jail, facing charges of Theft of Property, Criminal Mischief 1st degree, Assault 3rd degree, and Refusal to Submit to Arrest.
