Sickening moment shameless pickpocket thief steals OAP’s purse without her knowing as she goes shoppingJanuary 12, 2019
CCTV footage shows the woman being closed followed by two men as she enters a shop in Corby, Northants.
Just seconds after she steps into the store a man can be seen reaching around the woman to remove her purse from her coat pocket.
The victim only realised her purse was missing when she arrived at the store’s tills to pay for her shopping.
Cops now believe that she was followed into the shop after withdrawing cash from a nearby ATM last Saturday.
A Northamptonshire Police spokesman said: “Officers investigating a purse theft in Corby have released CCTV of the offence in order to identify two men they would like to speak to.
“At 11.50am on Saturday, January 5, a woman entering a shop in Corporation Street was closely followed by an unknown man.
“CCTV from the store shows the man reach around the woman and remove her purse from her coat pocket, while another appears to hide his actions from passersby.
“Anyone with information about the identity of either of the men pictured is asked to contact Northamptonshire Police on 101.”
