Purse stealing suspects arrested

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Two women wanted for robbing elderly shoppers are now behind bars.

Bernalillo County deputies arrested Breanna Aguilar and Marie Jones Monday night.

The Albuquerque Police Departments says the two worked with Andre Nevarez to rob their victims outside grocery stores.

Nevarez was arrested earlier this month for allegedly pulling a gun on an elderly woman.

Police say he grabbed her purse while he was still in his car then drove off, dragging her.

All three suspects are accused of using the victims’ credit cards.
