Hotel security cornered a suspect after a purse and a set of keys were stolen at the Royal Oak Inn late Wednesday night.
Police later arrested and charged her and a second suspect.
Officers were called to the hotel following a report that the purse and keys had been taken from a table in the hotel’s lounge. They were able to identify two people they believe were responsible for the theft and managed to recover the stolen items.
A 23-year-old Brandon man and a 25-year-old Brandon woman have been charged. They were both found to be bound by court orders due to previous criminal offences and were held overnight for a bail hearing Thursday morning.
