A Redding man turned himself in to his parole officer Friday because he was having a tough time living with a crime he committed back in February.

36-year-old Jeremiah James Woolf told his parole officer he had something weighing on his conscience and then confessed to snatching a 57-year-old woman's purse while she was walking in the Target parking lot on Dana Drive February 16.

Woolf told a detective that he committed the robbery to finance his drug habit, then disposed of the victim's purse in the Sacramento River. He also admitted trying to use her ATM card at the former Raley's Supermarket on Hartnell Avenue.

He was arrested for robbery and parole violation and booked into the Shasta County Jail.
