Lexington police say they have tracked down two suspects accused of scamming a woman out of a woman's purse at a local hospital.
Police say a woman was trying to return a purse to a woman who left it behind at Baptist Health when one of the two suspects told her she knew the woman and would give it back. Investigators say the purse contained more than $2,200 worth of jewelry.
Police tracked Susan Marie Williams, 40, and Sandra Lou Pursifull, 50, to the Leestown Road Kroger and arrested them. Both women face felony theft charges. Police also charged Williams with fraudulent use of a credit card.
