LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Three of the seven women wanted in connection with thefts of wallets from employees of medical offices are now in custody.
Nicole Renee Jefferson, 28, and her sister, April Lanette Jefferson, 20, both surrendered to authorities early Thursday.
According to Det. Tony Ford of the St. Matthews Police Department, the Jefferson sisters and the other five women would walk into the nurses station and medical offices looking for the purses of female employees.
After the thefts, the women would go on a shopping spree, racking up thousands of dollars in charges on credit cards.
Authorities say all of the women involved are related. Six are sisters; the seventh is a cousin. Another of the seven, Lashonda Jefferson, was arrested on Tuesday. Her bond was set at $5,000 cash after her arraignment Wednesday.
Nicole and April Jefferson were booked into Louisville Metro Corrections on charges of burglary, fraudulent use of a credit card, and engaging in organized crime. They are scheduled to be arraigned Friday morning.
The women still being sought are Anjenette Jefferson, Donnika Jefferson, Teyana Locke and Adrienne Talbot. Anyone with information about these women is asked to call St. Matthews Police at 893-9000.
