PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A local woman is out hundreds of dollars, after a purse thief hit a local healthcare clinic.

It happened Thursday morning at the Providence Gateway Immediate Care Center on Northeast 99th Avenue.

Detectives say a woman pretended to work for a neighboring clinic and convinced the victim to let her inside. The victim realized the woman was gone about an hour later, along with her Coach purse and wallet.

Investigators say by the time the victim noticed, the thief had already spent $700 at places like Starbucks and Fred Meyer.

If you have information, call Portland police.
