ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (Gray News) Police say two women stole a wallet from a 75-year-old woman shopping for groceries and then used that card to buy thousands of dollars' worth of items.

They stole the card on Nov. 15, and a half hour later went to another store where they paid for $5,000 worth of electronics and gift cards with that card, according to police.

Investigators say when the two tried to buy more things at a third store, the card was declined.

Police shared photos on social media of the women and the car officers believe they were driving.
