Thieves harass Martin's shoppers

Posted by Shawn Maclauchlan

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Earlier this week, a thief distracted a shopper at Martin's and made off with her wallet.

A similar incident happened again Thursday morning at the Martin's at Stony Point. This time, though, the crooks didn't get away with anything.

The shopper fought off two women who tried distracting her and getting her purse.

Now police are looking for them and the get-away driver who was in a green Ford pick up.
