SEABROOK - In 14 years, Lisa Hall Mazzaglia’s stolen purse didn’t travel far.
It was taken from a shopping plaza in Seabrook in 2002, then found Tuesday morning at a Market Basket in Seabrook
For Hall Mazzaglia, it’s like going through a time capsule she never meant to leave for herself. A Nokia cell phone, camera with rolls of film, and a pager were all still inside. Along with the technology, a lot of has changed in 14 years.
“I think it took a lot of little twists of fate to get back to me. I have a different last name, I live in a different house, but they were able to track me down. The fact that someone was kind enough to return it, it made for a pretty crazy story,” Mazzaglia said.
The purse was taken from her cart while she was shopping for gifts to give to a family in need.
“It was Christmas and I was trying to do something nice which made it that much worse,” Mazzaglia said.
Now, more than a decade later, it turned up in a trash can.
Longtime Market Basket employee Beau Haines turned it in to management who contacted police.
“To get it to back to the owner is even more amazing,” Haines said.
Now Hall Mazzaglia is reunited with her things from the past, everything but all of the cash she had taken out for gifts.
“Obviously whoever took it really needed the cash, so hopefully it served them well,” Mazzaglia said.
Mazzaglia says she looks forward to developing some of those rolls of film to see what memories she’s now gotten back.
