LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- A woman accused of stealing purses from employees at doctor's offices across Kentucky appeared in court Monday.

Dressed in a yellow Louisville Metro Corrections jumpsuit, 36-year-old Karyn Merida was brought into the courtroom for a hearing that lasted less than a minute.

She was arrested by Kentucky State Police earlier this month after being wanted by several agencies including Louisville, St. Matthews, Jeffersontown, and Lexington Police.

Authorities say she had 14 outstanding warrants.  Her charges include burglary, theft, and fraudulent use of a credit card.
