CCTV: Brazen Thieves Steal Pensioners' Purse in Coventry

Police have released footage of a man and a woman working together to steal a pensioners' purse in a Coventry supermarket.
A woman is seen to distract a lone elderly female shopper while her accomplice checks her shopping trolley and brazenly dips his hand into her personal trolley bag and takes her purse. The pair then meet in another aisle where the man transfers the purse to the woman’s shopping basket and she neatly covers it with a bag of potatoes. The duo are then seen to leave the store separately.
Inspector Gez Amadeo from Coventry Police said: "The purse contained the woman’s pension and bank cards, which were used for purchases before being cancelled."
