Suspects Arrested in Connection to Rehoboth Purse Snatching

Posted:

REHOBOTH BEACH- Del.- Delaware State Police have arrested two people in connection with a purse snatching at the Outlets in Rehoboth Beach.

Authorities said it happened at the Seaside Outlets around 5:30 p.m. on Monday. According to troopers, a 77-year-old woman was entering the store when 36-year-old Jamie Queen, of Millsboro, grabbed the woman's purse and ran to a silver Chevrolet Cavalier that was waiting nearby.

Investigators said a witness tried to follow the vehicle but lost sight of it. Police said a trooper then spotted the car on John J. Williams Highway and pulled them over. Queen and the driver, 34-year-old Roger Spence, of Baltimore, were taken into custody.

According to troopers, while searching the vehicle they found the victim's purse, items taken from another stolen purse on April 19, as well as drug paraphernalia. Police said the license plate on the Cavalier was also stolen.

Both Queen and Spence were charged with first-degree robbery and related offenses. They are being held at the Department of Corrections on secured bail.
