NORTH RIDGEVILLE, Ohio — North Ridgeville police arrested a mother and son accused of stealing from people around the area.
According to the department, someone stole a woman’s purse from the sanctuary at St. Peter’s Catholic Church on Friday morning.
The victim was able to give a description of the female suspect to officers, which ultimately helped them solve the case.
They were able to match those details with information they already had on the same suspect from other thefts.
When they stopped the suspect’s vehicle, they found Robin Smith, 56, inside along with her son, Marcus Smith, 35, and some of the stolen items.
They allegedly used the stolen credit cards to buy gift cards at stores nearby, officers said.
The pair is now facing multiple charges, including misuse of credit cards.
