A 67-year-old was in Aldi, in Cuerden Way, Bamber Bridge, when a woman walked up to her, then reached into her bag (which was attached to her trolley by the handles) and took her purse from inside.
There was a small amount of cash in it, plus some bank cards and the victim’s mum’s wedding ring.
The cards were cancelled but one had already been used.
