An elderly lady didn't have a way to pay for her items at a Grand Junction store. The reason? A woman stole her wallet.

Stealing a little old lady's wallet is horrible, but this thief took it one step further by fraudulently paying for her own purchases at the same store where the wallet was stolen.
