Police are appealing for information after thieves stole a purse belonging to an 87-year-old woman in Cambridge.
The victim only realised she was missing her purse when she received a phone call from her bank about irregular activity on her account.
A police spokesman said: “We believe the victim’s card was used in Asda in the Beehive Centre on February 13 between 1pm and 1.20pm to purchase a Samsung TV worth £459 and household items amounting to £117.50.
“£300 cash was also withdrawn from NatWest in Fitzroy Street at about midday the same day.”
The spokesman said: “We are particularly keen to speak to the three people in the CCTV footage as we believe they will be able to assist with our investigation.”
