Metro police have now charged 2 women with theft for stealing the purse of a 72-year-old woman in East Nashville.
According to an arrest affidavit, the mother-daughter pair, Renee Hooten and Jameseia Hooten, were arrested thanks in part to tips that rolled in after News 2 broke the story.
The report accuses Jameseia Hooten of actually taking the purse and Renee Hooten of watching it happen.
Both women are free on $2,500 bond.
Viewers not only helped identify the women shown in surveillance video, they also donated money to help the victim.
