The incident took place at about 5:21pm at Foodtown Supermarket, located on Pompton Avenue, Cedar Grove.
Once she discovered the theft, the owner of the purse alerted authorities and then soon after contacted her credit card companies who informed her that the cards had just been used at three different locations at the mall. Officers responded to the mall area but were unable to locate the suspects.
Additionally, investigators determined that the pair left the Foodtown parking lot traveling in a large black Sport Utility Vehicle believed to Chevrolet.
Anyone with information about the incident or the suspect is asked to contact Cedar Grove Police Detective Michael Tower at 973-239-4100.
