Granby (WSYR-TV) – Four women in Oswego County have been accused of loading up shopping carts and trying to steal more than $1,000 worth of merchandise from a Walmart location in the town of Granby.
When they were trying to make their getaway, Sheriff’s Deputies say one of the suspects - Cynthia Beauvais - left her purse and identification in a shopping cart. Sheriff's Deputies arrested the 24-year-old Williamstown woman after she contacted them to retrieve her missing purse. Although Beauvais refused to surrender the other suspects, Sheriff's Investigators eventually tracked them down through other acquaintances.
