Police are looking for a group of women who steal their victims' wallets, then spend thousands of dollars on their credit cards.
At least three thefts have been reported in Coral Springs. Two others were reported in Coconut Creek.
An 85-year-old woman had her wallet swiped while she was at Walmart in August.
"I had it at the top like this but apparently they just unzipped it real fast," she said. The woman asked that she not be identified.
The thief used her wallet at the Walmart, spending $132.86, then changing into blue scrubs and trying to buy $400 in merchandise at a Target in Coral Springs, police say.
"How fast they got into the purse is unbelievable," said the woman.
Anyone with information on the thieves is asked to call the Coral Springs Police Department at 954-346-1343 or Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
