A couple who Clay County deputies believe are responsible for the theft of a woman's wallet and cellphone taken from her purse in a Walmart store while she shopped last month have been identified and arrested.
Investigators said Robert Hinton and Leslee Roewe were identified from a tip on the Sheriff's Office's Facebook page.
Hinton is charged with petit theft, fraudulent use of a credit card and dealing in stolen property. Roewe is charged with dealing in stolen property and fraudulent use of a credit card.
The 61-year-old victim said she was kneeling down to a low shelf and her back was turned to her shopping cart, and when she stood back up, she discovered her wallet and cellphone had been taken out of her purse.
Deputies said the victim's stolen credit card was used at the same Walmart not even an hour later for $103.98.
