Surveillance video showed a male sitting beside her and pretending to assist while reaching into her plastic shopping bag and removing an envelope containing $300 cash. The male was identified by police and Thursday was located downtown and arrested.

A 33-year-old Guelph man is charged with theft under $5,000. He will appear in court February 27.
