Mugging Suspects Caught in Florida

Police in Florida catch the 2 young men wanted in the mugging of an elderly Ishpeming woman.

Ishpeming Police say they’re 25-year-old Jesse Mitchell and 24-year-old Kasey Morcom, both from the city.

They were arrested this afternoon in New Port Richey, Florida.

That’s on the Gulf Coast, about 30 miles northwest of Tampa.

They’re waiting to be extradited back to Michigan.

Mitchell and Morcom are accused of mugging an 81-year-old woman on October 17th in the parking lot of Pioneer Bluff Apartments, where she lives, shortly after she’d won $1,000 playing bingo.
