Arlington Police Arrest Trio Suspected Of Stealing Wallets

ARLINGTON (CBSDFW.COM) – Three people who were stealing credit cards from unsuspecting shoppers are in jail, according to Arlington police.

The trio, two men and a woman, worked together for several weeks to snatch wallets out of the purses of their victims. About a dozen women were targeted, all of them over the age of 50.

Police say the thieves would wait until their victims left their grocery cart unattended before taking their wallets from their purses. The suspects would then use the stolen credit cards to buy gas, gift cards and other items.

Jamie Farris, 27, has been charged with three counts of credit card abuse.
