The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office has charged two women with multiple charges after investigating reports of six victims having purses or wallets taken from their shopping carts at the Destin Walmart on Wednesday.

Keri Michelle Augustine, 29 and Lacey Jean Hernandez, 27, both of Defuniak Springs, are accused taking purses, removing items such as jewelry, cash, and credit cards and then discarding the purses or wallets inside the store.

Hernandez is accused of using three credit cards from one victim to buy three Walmart gift cards.

While interviewing Augustine, investigators say a gift card purchased with a stolen credit card was observed sticking out of her shirt.

Both women have been charged with theft of credit cards, fraudulent use of credit cards, and grand theft.
