A 67-year-old woman was robbed of her purse as she was getting into her car outside of the Sandwich Factory on Market Street Wednesday evening. The woman had $900 cash, two checks issued to her, along with multiple debit and credit cards in it.

Police were able to spot the getaway car within minutes of the robbery, but Irene Consiglio, Frank Consiglio’s wife and the apparent driver of the car, fled from police after being stopped.

She pulled over at the Blue Wolf Tavern Banquet Hall on Lockwood Boulevard. The man who stole the purse jumped out of the car and ran into the woods. Police searched for him on Wednesday, but could not find him.

Irene Consiglio has been a teacher for Poland schools for the past 13 years. She is also a track coach.
