College Station police say a suspect has been identified and an arrest is pending in a parking lot purse snatching of a local woman.

Dana Grove had her purse stolen out of her shopping cart while she was loading groceries into her car after a trip to Kroger. Grove managed to get a description of the female suspect and the car's license plate.

But she says when she contacted the College Station detective assigned to her case, the detective told her he had a four-month case backlog.

Monday night, the Groves said after our story aired, they were called by an assistant police chief who assured them their case is a priority.
