Thieves con stranded couple

The search continues for a pair of thieves who pretended to help a couple, but instead stole from them.

The couple's car broke down outside the Kroger store at Tates Creek and Man O'War.

That is when two men pulled up in a silver Ford Fusion and offered help.

The man, who was looking under the hood of the car, then grabbed the woman's purse and took off to his car.

He and the driver then took off.

Some of the couple's friends showed up, just as the crime occurred, and they followed the crooks' car.

The thieves eventually tossed the woman's purse out the window, but not before taking cash.

Police have leads in the case.
