A woman had her wallet stolen Thursday in what police believe was a common holiday scam that's happened several times at Perimeter area retailers.
The theft was reported at Ross at the 100 block of Perimeter Place at around 2:40 p.m.
The victim reported that two people bumped into her shopping cart, which had her purse in it.
Police say it's likely that's the distraction the suspected thieves needed to grab a wallet from the women's purse.
According to the victim, the two suspects hustled out of the store shortly afterward.
Police are advising that people not leave their purses in things like shopping carts, especially during the holiday shopping crush.
