      A woman was taken into custody less than three hours after Rossford Police posted photos of a theft suspect.Nicole L. Graser, of Perrysburg, was arrested at her home Monday night.

      The 32-year-old is charged with two counts of theft for allegedly stealing an elderly woman's purser from a grocery cart.

      Police said surveillance video, from a Giant Eagle store, shows Graser entering the store just before the crime.

      After the theft, investigators said Graser used the victim's credit cards at several local stores and ATMs.

      Though none of the photos released show the Perrysburg resident with anyone, authorities said she was accompanied by an 8 to 12-year-old male.

      The pair was seen leaving the scene in a grey minivan; pictures of the vehicle were also released to the public.
