Thieves strike assisted living facility

Published On: Aug 02 2013 04:24:07 PM EDT

Flagler County detectives are seeking the public's help in identifying two women who are suspected of stealing credit cards and cash from residents at a Palm Coast assisted living facility.

Deputies are investigating one theft that occurred July 22 at Las Palmas on Town Court and then three others that occurred at the same facility the next day.

Detectives believe that in all four incidents the residents were out of their rooms having lunch when the thief took the opportunity to enter the empty rooms and go through purses and wallets.

A suspect in the incidents was videotaped using one of the victim's credit cards at Walmart in Palm Coast, deputies said.

Ormond Beach police are investigating similar incidents in their city and have produced a video showing another woman using the same stolen credit card as the Palm Coast suspect, deputies said. The two women are believed to be working together.

Anyone who can identify the women is asked to contact the Flagler County Sheriff's Office at 386-586-4801 or Crime Stoppers at 888-277-2488 (TIPS). Callers may remain anonymous and could be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to an arrest.
