The incident happened at approximately 11: 30 a.m. on Sept. 6 when the female victim was shopping at Kroger.  She was approached by a black male who asked her help in reading something. While she was distracted, a black female took the victim’s wallet from her purse in the shopping cart. The suspects then reunited outside the store and used the stolen credit cards at retail stores throughout Dalton, spending more than $4,500 in less than an hour.
