Bensalem Police: These Perps Alleged To Have Picked Pocket Senior Citizen

Suspect 2

by Alex Lloyd Gross

Senior citizens are trusting of people. Sometimes too trusting of strangers . Police in Bensalem say the two females in the photos and below video took advantage of that trust. It was on December 15,2023 in broad daylight, that these two got out of a Chevy Suburban at the Giant on Street Road. They walk into the store. One of them points as soon as they enter the store.

They quickly chose a senior citizen and distracted her. Perhaps they engaged her in conversation , but they diverted her attention, while the other went through her purse and stole her wallet. Once they got the wallet, the two left the store quickly and got into the passenger side of the Suburban. That indicated a third person who was driving.

The SUV leaves the Giant lot and travels to the Sams club at Philadelphia ( Formerly Franklin) Mills, where a credit card was used in a fraudulent purchase of merchandise, police said.
