WEST PITTSTON -- Police in West Pittston arrested two women who allegedly stole a purse from a good Samaritan who gave them a ride Wednesday night.

Gayoski gave them a ride from the supermarket.

Schock told Newswatch 16 she's sorry for what they did.

While Schock made bail, her daughter did not, and is still locked up in Luzerne County.

    We have no deterrent for crime anymore. What is gonna happen some fines and probation? Hard labor have people become afraid of getting caught and what might happen if they have to face the consequences.

      Actually, they have a Trump sign in their front yard.
      Clinton supporters are liberal, they donate to the poor. Trump supporters have no problem stepping on the proverbial necks of those “below them” to get ahead.
