WATCH: Man distracts shopper at Lincoln Hy-Vee while woman steals her wallet

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — Lincoln Police are still searching for answers after a theft in October.

A woman had her wallet stolen while grocery shopping at the Hy-Vee at 70th Street and Pioneers Boulevard.

Police say a man started a conversation with her about the ham she was purchasing, and while her back was turned, a woman took the wallet from her purse.

Upon finding her wallet missing, the woman spoke with employees, who looked at security footage.

Police think the man and woman were working together.

The case is similar to a theft that happened at a Super Saver in November. One person distracted a shopper, while another stole her credit card.

Anyone with information is asked to call Lincoln Crime Stoppers at 402-475-3600 or visit its website.
