Authorities are searching for the man they say stole an off-duty deputy's purse that held her badge and gun at a Central Florida grocery store.

The deputy's credentials, along with her .380 Ruger still inside its holster, were in the purse. The deputy was not identified.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call Heartland Crime Stoppers at 800-226-TIPS (8477).
