Police: Pregnant Pickpocket Pinches Plastic at Panera
Two suspects allegedly filched a shopper's credit card at the popular bakery earlier this month, and racked up about $1,000 in charges at Wegman's and Best Buy right away.
A pregnant woman and her accomplice stole a credit card from a woman's purse and used it to make fraudulent purchases earlier this month, Cherry Hill Police say.
Now detectives are asking for help in identifying them.
Surveillance footage shows that the women pickpocketed the card from another shopper's purse at Panera Bread at the Market Place at Garden State Park shopping center around 6:30 p.m. Dec. 1.
They didn't waste any time putting it to use. The pair only had to go a few hundred yards to Wegmans and Best Buy, both in the same shopping center, and immediately racked up nearly $1,000 in charges, according to police.
One of the suspects is a woman roughly 25 to 30 years old and in the later stages of pregnancy. She was wearing a long-sleeved white shirt and black pants, and had long, straight black hair.
The other woman is believed to be between 35 and 45 years old, wearing a black jacket and dark pants; she had bright red dyed hair.
Anyone with information about either suspect is asked to call Cherry Hill Detective Rob Kempf at 856-432-8829.
