ST. CHARLES, Mo. (KSDK) - A woman has been charged for allegedly stealing an elderly woman's wallet outside a Walmart at the end of June.
Tracy Mechelle Jennings, 43, of St. Peters, is charged with felony stealing.
The 83-year-old victim was approached by a man and woman around 6:30 p.m. Friday, June 28 at the Walmart in the 2800 block of Veteran's Memorial Parkway. The woman told the victim she helps people locate items within the store they need to purchase.
The female suspect told the male to wait in the car and listen to music while she helped the victim shop. The female suspect and the victim shopped for a short period of time.
After the victim paid for her items, the female suspect walked her outside to help put her items into her car. The victim told police she leaned into her backseat to get a can of beans to give to the woman as a thank you.
When the suspect left, the victim noticed her wallet containing several hundred dollars, her ID, and personal papers had been stolen from her purse.
Jennings is held on a $25,000 cash-only bond.
