The second theft happened the same afternoon when an 85-year-old woman had her purse stolen from her handbag in Stringers Store in Lytham
PC Danielle Lilley, of Preston Police, said: ‘These crimes are despicable and callous acts of theft from elderly victims and I would urge anyone who knows these women or who has any information to get in touch.’
