Thieves Steal Credit Card From Elderly Shopper


DAPHNE, AL- Stealing from an elderly woman is about as low as it gets.

Daphne Police say that’s what this man and woman did at the Hobby Lobby.  Investigators say the couple used the classic, “distract and grab” tactic to steal the 70 year old’s wallet.

The thieves then went to the Best Buy in Spanish Fort and used a stolen credit card from the woman’s purse to buy about $7,000 worth of smart phones, digital cameras and gift cards.

Investigators say the suspects could be local or could be out-of-town criminals using nearby I-10 to make their getaway.

If police can catch the suspects, they’ll be charged with theft and credit card fraud.
