Old lady is robbed - level 3
This is the moment a shameless couple was caught stealing a purse from a disabled pensioner.
The 71-year-old victim who lives in a nursing home was targeted, as she went shopping in a branch of Wilkinsons with a carer in Rushden in Northamptonshire.
CCTV shows the victim looking at items on shelves, slowly moving along in her electric wheelchair with a blue blanket covering her legs.
As her carer walks on, a woman in a pink jumper leans over and rummages in a bag hanging on the back of the wheelchair.
Cameras from the store then show the woman in pink take the purse, which contained more than £100.
She then passed it on to a man in a dark jacket and a cap, and they made their way to the exit.
The theft happened on Wednesday the 7th of January. Northamptonshire Police say officers investigating the case would like to speak to anyone he was in the store at that time and saw the couple or who knows who they are.
Difficult words: shameless (a shameless person does not feel bad when he or she does something bad), disabled (a condition that makes it difficult to move or to think), target (to pick), branch (a shop which is part of a larger business), CCTV (security camera video), rummage (to search something).
