Thief tricks pensioner in Sainsbury's North Cheam car park
A thief tricked a 73-year-old shopper so she could steal her bank card in a North Cheam supermarket car park.
The trickster approached the woman after she had been shopping in Sainsbury's, London Road, waving a £5 note at her and asking if she had dropped it prompting the 73-year-old to get out her purse at around 3pm on August 29.
It was only a few minutes later as she was loading her car that the woman noticed her card was missing. Although she was quick to cancel the card, she found £300 had been taken from her account.
The suspect is a white woman, aged 20 to 30 with long dark hair. She wore a black head scarf and a coloured dress and spoke with a foreign accent.
If you saw this incident or have any other information, you can contact police on 101 or the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
