Ward, 35, and April Lynn Kelly, 43, were caught on a surveillance camera taking the handbag and then hastily leaving the store without it. Officers searched Kelly and found she had prescription drugs that were not prescribed to her. During interviews, Kelly also misdirected officers in an attempt to skew the investigation.

In addition to the larceny charges faced by Ward, Kelly was also charged with possession of narcotics, narcotics not in a proper container and interfering with an officer.
