Two Arrests in Hancock Purse Snatching

Two teenagers suspected in the theft of an elderly woman’s purse from her home in Hancock are being held on $25,000 bond.

Police say 19-year-old Michael Hylton of Hancock and 17-year-old Corey Hansen of South Range were arrested Friday evening.

They were both charged with 1st-degree home invasion — a 20-year felony — and larceny in a Building, which is a 4-year felony.

The suspects were arraigned in 97th District Court on Monday with their preliminary exams set for November 28th.

Hansen is also charged with breaking and entering a building with intent from a different, unrelated incident.
