The 16-year-old juvenile was charged with robbery, criminal conspiracy to commit robbery, criminal conspiracy to commit theft and two counts of receiving stolen property, police said. The 15-year-old juvenile was charged with criminal conspiracy to commit robbery and receiving stolen property, police said.

The boys were turned over to the Franklin County Juvenile Probation Department, police said.

Police said the first incident took place at Applebee's Restaurant, 1050 Wayne Ave., when a purse belonging to Lisa Galvin, 42, of Stafford, Va., was stolen.

Shortly before 11 p.m. as she was walking through the Giant parking lot at 993 Wayne Ave., Erica L. Barbour, 24, of Chambersburg, had her purse grabbed by a male who approached her from behind, police said. The male was seen getting into a vehicle, police said.

Witnesses to the robbery got a description and registration of the vehicle, which was traced to Gorman, according to Greenawalt.

Greenawalt said a description of the clothing worn by the male who robbed Barbour - black boots, a leather jacket and leopard skin pants - matched that of a person seen in the Giant store trying to use credit cards to make purchases and get cash advances.
