A housekeeper and her son were arrested yesterday for stealing a purse at the Econolodge on North 9th Street.
A woman from North Carolina was staying at the motel, had checked out, and realized that she had forgotten her purse. When she checked back in with Econolodge to recover her belongings, she was told that they were not there.
Police were able to get video that showed Barbara Thayer, a housekeeper, and Scottie La Fleur, her son, taking the purse. Police took the two into custody yesterday.
