Woman accused of stealing purse in Queensbury Wal-Mart restroom

A Queensbury woman has been accused of stealing another woman’s purse from a restroom in the Wal-Mar

A Queensbury woman has been accused of stealing another woman’s purse from a restroom in the Wal-Mart store on Quaker Road in Queensbury.

The Warren County Sheriff’s Office said Theresa R. Morehouse, 46, of Holden Avenue, was charged with grand larceny and also with criminal possession of a controlled substance because the purse contained prescription medication belonging to the victim.

Deputies said Morehouse found a Washington County woman’s purse in the restroom, concealed it and left the store.

Police worked with Wal-Mart security to obtain photos and video of the suspect and then used the sheriff’s website, www.sheriff.co.warren.ny.us, to post the suspect’s photo on its“Who Am I” page. Tips from the website led to Morehouse’s arrest, deputies said.
