Fresno police are searching for two women who allegedly stole a purse from another woman on Monday at a southeast Fresno Walmart.
Sgt. Mark Hudson said the victim placed her purse and baby in a malfunctioning shopping cart at the Walmart at 5125 E. Kings Canyon Road. When the woman went to exchange her cart, she accidentally left her purse in the broken cart.
Two women traveling with two small children then took the cart with the purse in it without notifying store employees, Hudson said. The victim discovered the theft after she finished her shopping.
Hudson said the woman lost more than $1,100. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (559) 498-STOP.
