Thieves target women's purses at local grocery stores
ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- Deputies are looking for a pair of wallet thieves targeting shoppers at local grocery stores.
Investigators in St. Johns County say one incident happened Friday at a Winn-Dixie on A1A in St. Augustine Beach. A woman reported her wallet missing as she was at the checkout counter. Security cameras picked up the crooks reaching into the woman's purse as it sat in her shopping cart.
Deputies believe the same two people made a similar move at a nearby Publix. Surveillance also caught the crime happening to an 81-year-old woman.
The couple's getaway car is described as a silver 4-door passenger car. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 888-277-TIPS.
