CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Two suspected purse snatchers were arrested Monday afternoon, after one of them failed to use a turn signal while driving.

Police arrested 29-year old Nemias Gonzalez and his passenger, 24-year old Michelle Martinez. Gonzalez was behind the wheel of a white Chevy truck when he turned from Shawnee onto Agnes Street without signaling.

Officers said that after impounding Gonzalez' truck, they found a purse that didn't belong to him. It belonged to a woman whose purse was stolen from her car on Sunday as she loaded groceries into her trunk.
