DENVER – Police are looking for a long-haired blond woman they say stole a wallet from a shopper at the Trader Joe's on Colorado Boulevard, and then went on a $35,000 shopping spree with the victim's American Express credit card.
The victim's wallet was stolen from her purse, which was in the victim's cart while she was shopping.
