Larry Emeanua, 32, was arrested and charged with robbery by sudden snatching.

Prosecutors Sarah Waters and Stewart Hedrick had just left the bar Lost Weekend, when Emeanua approached them offering to sell them drugs. The lawyers refused and walked away.

Emeanua then walked toward Hedrick, bumped him and walked off. Hedrick, of the cyber-crimes division, realized his wallet was missing and yelled Emeanua. Waters threatened to call the cops — and Emeanua returned the wallet and ran.

Miami Beach cops soon found Emeanua, who was immediately identified by the prosecutors. Emeanua claimed that the only reason he took the wallet was because he’d sold the lawyers “tickets to a club” and they’d refused to pay him.
