Three accused in credit card fraud case

Trio target senior in St. Albert

Three people accused of scamming a St. Albert senior are being sought by police.
 
The incident happened back on February 21st in the city's Walmart, when the victim was in the checkout line.
 
Police say a man and a woman approached her in an attempt to convince her that she'd dropped a 10 dollar bill on the ground.
 
Over the course of the conversation, the man spied on the woman as she entered her PIN into the card reader.
 
The two suspects approached her again as she was leaving, this time to try and distract her again by getting the money back.
 
As her wallet was open, the man swiped multiple credit cards from the victim.
 
Those two suspects then met up with another woman, and went on a shopping spree at the victim's expense, to the tune of roughly 5000 dollars.
 
The suspects are described as:

The male suspect (from Wal-Mart) is described as:

  • middle eastern
