TULSA, OK -- Two unrelated robbery incidents have resulted in the arrest of two suspects by Tulsa Police.

Police Sgt. Dave Walker says detectives investigating a purse snatching incident arrested 28-year-old Felicia Frazier. 

Frazier was arrested on complaints of concealing stolen property and unauthorized use of a credit card.

Police say on Thursday, a 65-year-old woman was shopping at Garden Ridge in the 11000 block of East 51st Street .  They say the suspect forcibly took the victim's purse and fled. The victim's husband was able to get a tag number of the suspect's vehicle.

A warrant was issued and Tulsa Police set up surveillance on the vehicle and arrested Frazier.

In an unrelated incident, Tulsa Police say an investigation into thefts at a Family Dollar store on Southwest Boulevard has led to the arrest of the store's manager.

Walker says detectives determined that the manager was lying about the robbery on March 15 .  He says 22-year-old Leslie Kimbrough was confronted with the facts and arrested on complaints of embezzlement by employee and filing a false police report.

Both suspects were booked into the Tulsa County jail.
