Franklin, TN – A customer at a local restaurant was surprised to find that her wallet had been stolen right out of the purse she hung over the back of her chair while she ate. Following the theft, the victim’s ATM card was used by a male suspect to make cash withdrawals from two different ATMs, and an in-person withdrawal by a female suspect – all totaling more than $3,000. Most troubling of all, the female suspect was able to quickly make a fake Oklahoma driver’s license in the name of the victim, and then use it to make a $2,500 cash withdrawal at the victim’s bank.
To help avoid becoming a victim, Franklin Police say that women should always keep their purses in sight, and closed so that thieves cannot easily see or remove their contents.
If you recognize these suspects or have information about the case, you could cash in on a reward of up to $1,000 with a call to Crime Stoppers: (615) 794-4000.
