Good news about a story we brought you Thursday-- police say they've caught a pair of purse snatchers accused of targeting a 92-year-old woman in Williston.

Police say they got several tips after surveillance video was on the news last night. They arrested Nicholas Bartlett, 32, of Johnson, and his girlfriend, Emily Bagley, 35, of Hardwick.

Police say the two swiped 92-year-old Marjorie Cadran's purse from her shopping cart while she was picking up medications at the Hannaford in Williston. The bag had $2,000 in it. Police say they helped the elderly woman cancel her credit card, but the cash is long gone.

Bartlett and Bagley now face felony charges.
