Distraction Theft

Police are warning the public to be aware of their personal surroundings after a seventy six year old St. Thomas woman had her bank cards stolen during a distraction theft. The woman had parked at Walmart in an accessible parking spot when she exited her car and began to make her way into the store. The woman was approached by a man who advised her she dropped a twenty dollar bill. Even though the woman knew she did not drop the bill, the man insisted she check by opening her wallet. Once the woman opened the wallet the man was able to take her debit and credit card. Police continue to investigate the incident as the cards were used shortly after being stolen.
