Two arrested in connection to N. TX purse snatchings

Arlington police recently arrested a couple suspected in more than a dozen purse snatchings.

Police say 39-year-old Lakeisha Nixon and 36-year-old Donte Jones worked together at stores stealing purses from shopping carts.

Maria Mitchell of Grand Prairie says she was one of the victims last summer while shopping at an Aldi store.

She says Nixon distracted her, while Jones snuck her wallet out of her purse.

The couple was allegedly caught on surveillance video using stolen debit and credit cards in Arlington and Fort Worth.

After his December arrest, Jones was sentenced to four years in prison for parole violation.

Nixon faces nine charges of debit and credit card abuse.
