CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Authorities have arrested three women who apparently followed a 99-year-old woman from a casino to her Carson City home and robbed her of hundreds of dollars.

Police say they arrested the three women on Tuesday, about two weeks after the elderly woman was apparently robbed in her garage near downtown Carson City.

The victim reported that a woman confronted her Dec. 4 and forcefully took her purse, which contained $300 to $500 in cash and other belongings. She was not injured in the encounter.

Detectives say that during the booking process, they found one of the women still had a Nevada driver's license with the 99-year-old woman's name on it.

The three women are accused of robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery against a person age 60 or older.
