SALEM, N.H. (WHDH) - Authorities have arrested a New Hampshire woman in connection with a violent robbery at a Market Basket in Londonderry over the weekend.

Tremblay is accused of snatching a woman’s purse as she loaded her groceries into her car. Police said Tremblay and another woman drove up to the 54-year-old victim and one of them asked her for a cigarette. When she said she did not have one, police said Tremblay grabbed her purse. As the victim struggled to retrieve her purse, police said Tremblay drove off, dragging the victim several feet through the lot.

“There was no regard for her life. She could have dragged her under the back wheel and then killed her,” said Rolland Tremblay, who was in the Market Basket parking lot and witnessed what happened. He is not related to the suspect.

Police say Tremblay was found in possession of heroin at the time of her arrest. She is due in court Wednesday morning. Police are still looking for the second woman who was in the car with her.
