A wallet snatched, the thieves help themselves to a shopping spree, on an elderly woman's dime.  Beckley police said they need your help to catch the criminals.

Beckley police said on earlier this month two suspects took a elderly woman's wallet.  The said the victim was shopping at Wal-Mart and left her wallet in the buggy.  The woman walked off and two suspects grabbed her shopping cart.  Police said instead of returning the wallet the couple took out the lady's credit cards and went on a shopping spree.

Beckley police said the couple went on a 2 day shopping spree at Wal-Mart, the Cross Roads Mall and gas stations around town.  They said the couple racked up thousands of dollars in charges.

The couple are a male and female and can be seen on surveillance video.  The white woman was wearing a gray hoodie.  The two were passengers in a black jeep.

If you know who these two people are or have seen this vehicle -- please call Beckley police or crime stoppers at 304-255-STOP.
