ODESSA - Three people were arrested in Odessa on Thursday night, accused of organized criminal activity.
Authorities say the trio, all in their twenties, were trying to steal purses from shoppers at the west side Wal-Mart off Loop 338.
They were later caught at a nearby 7-11.
Authorities say the thieves could be facing more charges after suspicious items were found in the car they were using.
