MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A 70-year-old grandmother’s wallet was stolen while she was shoveling snow outside earlier this week, Minneapolis police say, and the public’s help is needed in finding the suspects.

According to authorities, her husband and her son were also inside the house when a man in a red cap came out the front door, approached the elderly woman and spoke with her.

Police say the man entered the home through the back door, walked through the house and out the front door with the woman’s wallet, plucking it from her purse.

The suspects then made, or attempted, purchases at the Target on East Lake Street.

Check out the photos of the suspects from the Target store, and if you have any information on the identity of them, please contact Sgt. Mark Gasior at 612-673-5357.
