HOUSTON — They’re a Bonnie and Clyde-like duo that deputies say are targeting women in the most heartless way.
Authorities said the pair can be seen in a surveillance video breaking into the cars of women attending church or funeral services and stealing purses left behind in Northwest Harris County.
In the latest case investigators said a woman was attending church service along Stuebner Airline Road when the thieves smashed her window and snatched her purse.
Hours later, the thieves showed up at a CVS Pharmacy, a few streets down, where cameras caught them loading up their cart with hundreds of dollars worth of items and paying the tab with one of the victim’s stolen checks.
Customers who frequent the pharmacy said they cannot believe how cold and calculated these thieves are.
“I think that it’s pretty sad. It’s pretty sick, that someone could actually do a person like that,” Tamethia Simon, pharmacy customer, said.
Their crimes stretch 41 miles. Detectives said the couple also broke into a car parked at a funeral home in Pearland.
The thieves took a wallet and tried using the victim’s credit cards at various stores, but to no avail.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Harris County Constables Precinct 4 at 281-376-3472.
