VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - Police in Virginia Beach need help identifying two suspects accused of stealing a woman's credit cards and going shopping with them.

According to police, on Sept. 2 an elderly woman was shopping at a TJ Maxx store when another woman distracted her while a man took her wallet from her cart.

Eight credit cards were taken and then used at stores in Virginia Beach and Norfolk, including Target, WalMart and BestBuy.

The man changed his appearance and clothing as he went from store to store using the stolen cards.

It's a little tough to see their faces because of the masks the're wearing, but if you recognize anything about them, police need your help.
