MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - While Tomasene Stevenson was getting married, police say a thief was stealing her purse and taking money from her bridesmaids' bags.
The bride's mother, Mabelenia Stevenson, said Monday that her daughter's passport, which she needed to go on a honeymoon cruise
in the Caribbean, was in her purse. Also inside were her medical insurance card, driver's license and checkbook.
Stevenson and her new husband, Edgar Marshall, were in Tampa Monday, where they planned to board the ship. The bride's mother said her daughter would be able to board, but wasn't sure she'd be able to get off in the Caribbean.
Mabelenia Stevenson said only a "desperate person" would steal during a church wedding and said she hoped the thief would at least
return her daughters documents.
