Police investigates thefts in western suburbs

July 28, 2009 In each case, an elderly woman was robbed.

Aurora police released a surveillance photo of a suspect they're looking for in a weekend theft at a grocery store. An 84-year-old woman says a man distracted her and when she got to the checkout. Her purse was missing.

The victim says a woman was with the man. But surveillance cameras did not capture her image. However, police do say the female suspect matches the description of a woman wanted for robbing two other elderly women in Aurora and Oswego in recent weeks.

Anyone with information is urged to call Aurora police.
