On May 24, 2023, at approximately 12 p.m., an elderly victim was shopping at the Marshall's in Colonial Heights. While shopping, she was distracted by one female suspect while a second female suspect removed the victim’s wallet from her pocketbook. The wallet was later located near a clothing rack with a credit card missing. The victim later received an alert from her bank for a large purchase at the Sam's Club in Colonial Heights, where the suspects made over $11,000 in purchases.
