The 80-year-old Bellmawr woman was getting into her car Sunday morning, having finished Easter breakfast at the Metro Diner on Route 130 in Brooklawn. It was around 10:40 a.m. and her family had just left when a man ran up, dragged her out of her car by an arm, and drove off. He was apparently fleeing after being recognized by employees at a nearby Rite Aid where he had shoplifted twice in two days, Brooklawn police said. The man had stolen merchandise around 6 p.m. Saturday from the drugstore directly adjacent to the diner, and returned early Sunday to do it again, Brooklawn officer John Gundle said.
