Police hope CCTV supermarket footage will help them identify a thief who stole an elderly woman’s wallet last Tuesday.

The wallet was taken from a trolley while the woman, aged in her 70s, was picking up an item of a low shelf at Tahmoor Woolworths between 5.15pm and 5.50pm on October 31.

The wallet was found on Menangle Street, Picton the next day with all contents inside except her money.

Police are searching through CCTV footage to identify the offender.

Witnesses should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
