Columbus investigators say they have nabbed two people wanted in recent purse snatchings at Walmart stories in Columbus. That's with the aid of deputies in a nearby county.

Harris County Sheriff's deputies arrested a man and a woman after receiving warrants for their arrest.

Deputies arrested Dempster Nelson at his home, then followed Kristie Denson from the dentist where they pulled her over and arrested her. 

 Denson was driving the same white car witnesses reported driving away from purse snatchings at Columbus Walmart stores.

Both were transported to the Muscogee County Jail where they are being held for two counts of robbery and one count entering auto.

Nelson and Denson are expected to appear in Recorder's Court at 9:00 a.m.
