2 Arrested After Cellphone App Locates Stolen Purse

Two Goshen residents have been arrested after a cellphone tracker app was used to locate a stolen purse. A Porter County woman reported her purse stolen while she shopped at a Valparaiso grocery store. The woman used another shopper's cellphone to call her husband, who began tracking the cellphone in the stolen purse on a home computer. Police say the husband directed them to an intersection in the town of Kouts. There, they arrested 34-year-old Lucas Nerio and 35-year-old Viviana Saucedo, both of Goshen. They are charged with theft and fraud and were being held in jail Monday on $8,500 bonds.
