Police searching for suspects that used credit cards after senior has wallet stolen in Port Perry
The DRPS has released surveillance images of two men who allegedly used bank cards stolen from a senior in Port Perry.
Shortly after 3 p.m. on Thursday (July 5), officers were called to Vos Your Independent Grocer in Port Perry after a 83-year-old man reported having his wallet and car keys stolen.
The elderly victim was putting groceries away into his vehicle when an unknown suspect approached the senior and started placing his groceries in his vehicle. The victim told the suspect that he didn’t need help but the man insisted. When the victim’s daughter exited the store, the suspect fled on foot.
