Cops: Woman leads police on chase, steals purses with 12-year-old daughter
SALEM, N.H. (FOX 25 / MyFoxBoston.com) - A 36-year-old woman is due in court to answer charges she stole purses from customers at stores in Salem, N.H., and then led police on a vehicle chase with her 12-year-old daughter in the car.
Police say Maria Molina, of Lawrence, Mass., stole purses from customers from at least three stores by grabbing the purses from shopping carts when the owners would look away.
On Saturday police spotted a car driven by a woman who matched the description of the suspect.
Molina apparently refused to stop and hit a car and a telephone pole while fleeing police.
