A woman in her 80s had bank cards stolen from her by two thieves in Ipswich.
The distraction theft happened at the Tesco Extra in Anson Road on November 13, between 3.35pm and 4pm.
The woman in her 80s reported she was approached by a man asking for help with directions, using a map on a phone to distract her.
While distracted, a second suspect stole the cards from her purse, which was in her car.
The woman only became aware of the theft when she checked her bank account online and saw transactions she did not recognise on her statement.
One of the suspects is described as white, of average build, aged between 40 and 60 years old, about 5ft 9in tall and clean shaven.
There is no description of the person suspected of stealing the cards.
