WOODBURY - Two people are being questioned by police in connection with the recent string of purse snatchings in Nassau County.

Police say Suffolk Police picked up a man and woman outside a gas station in Lindenhurst in connection with the purse snatchings.

Investigators say that the common link between all the snatchings has been a dark-colored Nissan car that witnesses have seen the suspects take off in.

Residents across the island say they are hoping that the purse snatchers are arrested soon and that police increase patrols to help fight the crimes.
