LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -
Metro police have a suspect in custody in connection with a purse snatching and auto theft back on Sept. 2.
Just before 10 p.m. on Sept. 2, a female victim returned to her car on South Decatur Boulevard near West Sahara Avenue to find a woman sitting in the driver's seat.
When the female suspect spotted the victim, she called for her male cohort who grabbed the victim's purse. The two then sped off in the woman's car.
Following the release of surveillance photos, Metro detectives received numerous tips and arrested Robert Thompson, 23, on Tuesday. Thompson faces charges of use of a deadly weapon, burglary with use of a deadly weapon and carrying a concealed weapon.
The female suspect has yet to be captured. She is described as about 5'8" and 150 pounds with black wavy hair.
