Police released surveillance photographs of a woman seen in department store on the 900 block of West Street Road in Warminister around 2:00 p.m.
Police say the suspect distracted an elderly woman customer with conversation. When the woman turned her head, the suspect stole her purse for the shopping cart and ran out of the front doors into the parking lot.
She is described as a white female in her early 20's, with blonde or brown hair in a ponytail, wearing a black jacket with a tan fur lined hood and blue jeans.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Warminster Township Police Department at 215-672-1000.
