The 86-year-old victim was shopping at the Hospice Thrift Store when the suspect in the video wearing a red hat and white shirt approached her and told her she shouldn’t leave her purse hanging from her walker because someone could steal it. A few seconds later, the suspect bends down and takes the woman’s wallet from her purse. He quickly walks away and hands the wallet to the woman seen in the video wearing pink. An hour later, the woman in pink used the victim’s credit card at the McDonald’s at Dale Mabry and El Prado.
