[ARCHIVED] Allen Police Warn of Wallet Thieves


Allen Police are working to stop a series of wallet thefts. Investigators say three people work together to distract victims, then remove their wallet from an open or unsecured purse.

Immediately after stealing the wallets, the victims’ credit or debit cards will be used at nearby Target stores. Four incidents have occurred in Allen since Feb. 1.

The trio appear to be two black males and one black female. If you have any information about this criminal activity, please contact the Allen Police Department at 214.509.4239. You can also send an anonymous tip via text message to 847411 (TIP411) using the keyword “ALLENPD.”
