$20,000 spent after wallet stolen from Manchester woman's purse

MANCHESTER - Rosalind Fellbaum was at Marshall's in Bedford when she turned away from her purse for what she said was only a second before she realized her wallet was stolen.

"There were two of them (people who she said stole her wallet)," Fellbaum said. "A Latino woman was talking to me and then the man bumped my carriage. By the time I got home I noticed the wallet was gone."

The two suspects made off with her wallet, she said, filled with credit cards, and went to the Mall of New Hampshire where they spent about $20,000 in just under two hours.

Fellbaum saw her bank account dwindling.

"I monitor my accounts everyday, she said. "Luckily my bank also caught it, and I don't have to pay for any of the charges, but people need to know these two are still out there."

Shoppers were on the defensive Tuesday and said they are keeping their purses and wallets close.

Fellbaum has a warning for all shoppers:

"Don't be fooled and be alert. Do not leave your shopping cart because it could be gone in a second."
