A 17-year-old caught on camera picking the pocket of an elderly man with her 16-year-old friend at a gas station in Warren has been arraigned.

Brittany Alexander now faces robbery and conspiracy charges. 

Eighty-five-year-old Garnie Edwards was heartbroken over what happened to him at that gas station.

Last week, Mr. Edwards was at 10 Mile and Hoover to get gas when the incident occurred. 

Police say it was the 17-year-old who actually took his wallet.

Alexander's 16-year-old friend also had a juvenile hearing regarding the case.
