TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) - Two women accused of snatching an elderly woman’s purse in a Toledo grocery store parking lot were indicted Monday on charges of robbery and receiving stolen property.

They appeared in court on Monday, where both had their bonds set at $100,000, and both were ordered to have no contact with the victim.

Crow and Statin are due back in court on March 15.

According to authorities, a detective who was collecting evidence for robbing an elderly victim at the Food Town on March 3 located additional credit cards that did not belong to either suspect. The detective followed up with the name on the credit cards and she said her purse had been stolen from the Food Town parking lot on Feb. 27, but she did not report it. Surveillance video from Feb. 27 showed the felony theft.

Crow and Statin were originally charged after Food Town surveillance video showed them robbing an elderly woman on March 3, dragging her to the ground as they stole her purse.
