It was later found that the victim’s credit cards had been used at several local businesses to purchase gift cards and other items.

Investigation uncovered a description of a vehicle that was used by suspected perpetrators.

The next day, January 31, a trooper with the Missouri State Highway Patrol stopped a vehicle for a registration violation. The vehicle matched the description of the vehicle believed to have been used by the suspects in the purse theft.

Camdenton officers were contacted and arrived to make contact with the two occupants of the vehicle, Amy N. Middaugh of Kansas City and Jason C. Webb of Raymore. 

The couple were found to be staying at a local motel. A search of the motel room allegedly revealed Webb to be in possession of multiple items of the victim.

Middaugh, 39, was subsequently charged with felony stealing with a surety bond of $20,000 set. Webb was charged with five felony stealing charges, felony tampering and identity theft. A surety bond of $300,000 was set for Webb.
