Police are appealing for information after an elderly woman had cash cards stolen whilst shopping at a Cheltenham supermarket.

The incident happened at Morrisons on Caernarvon Road in Hatherley between 10am and 10.30am on Tuesday February 10. 

The victim, a 78-year-old woman from Colesbourne was returning to her car, a silver Volkswagen Fox, after doing her shopping. As she has put the shopping in the car and got into the driver’s seat she has been approached by a woman. The woman has asked the victim for directions to the hospital, to which she has obliged. As the victim has written down the directions, a man has joined the woman. Once the woman has been given the directions the two have walked off.

As the victim has attempted to fill her car up with fuel she has discovered that her credit and debit cards are missing. It is believed that the cards were attempted to be used in two shops.

The first offender is described as female, of eastern European origin, aged between 30 and 40 and with brown hair. The second offender is described as male, again of eastern European origin and between 30 and 40 years of age. He had short, dark, curly hair.

Anyone who may have information on the incident is asked to contact Gloucestershire Police on 101, quoting incident number 292 of February 10.
