Boca Raton police responded after a woman called and reported that a man came up and snatched her purse while she was making out with a friend on the beach.
Neither of the kissers were identified, but the woman told officers that the individual who had dropped her and her date off at the beach, Daniel Eisemann, was the man who took her purse.
She had never met Eisemann before he arrived with her date to pick her up.
After the 27-year-old snatched the purse, which contained her cell phone and $500 cash, the woman's date took off after him, the Sun Sentinel reported.
When he didn't come back, the woman sought assistance and called police.
The woman's date, Eisemann and another man were found at a nearby Red Roof Inn.
The purse, minus the cash, was recovered. Eisemann was charged with grand theft.
