A pair of heartless thieves were caught on camera snatching an elderly woman’s wallet as she was shopping at a California grocery store, authorities said.

The suspects, two women, are still being sought for the crime that occurred at a Safeway in Walnut Creek.

“The women in this video worked in tandem to steal a wallet from an elderly woman’s purse in Safeway,” the Walnut Creek Police Department posted to Facebook on Wednesday.

The police department released surveillance footage of the theft that occurred as the victim was browsing the refrigerated meat section.

As the victim was bent over and inspecting a possible purchase, one of the suspects crept behind her and stole the wallet, video shows.

The other suspect was nearby and appeared to act as a lookout.

Facebook users were quick to condemn the crime.

“This is the most upsetting thing!!” commented one user. “How can people be that terrible”

Another Facebook user wrote: “Elder abuse. This is absolutely heartbreaking. I hope she was able to get her groceries.”
