Upper Township, N.J. - The New Jersey State Police is seeking the public’s assistance with identifying two suspects who allegedly robbed an elderly woman and fraudulently used her credit cards.
On Thursday, August 27, two suspects entered the Marmora ShopRite in Upper Township, Cape May County when the female suspect engaged an elderly woman in a conversation while the male suspect took the woman’s wallet from her shopping cart.
The suspects were captured on video surveillance as they walked out of the ShopRite and got into a white Cadillac CTS or ATS sedan.
The two suspects then used the victim’s credit cards to purchase several gift cards and other items at the Ocean View CVS on Route 9.
