    Authorities are asking for assistance from the public to help them identify a woman suspected of identity theft.

    On June 2, 2011, around 2:30 p.m., detectives allege a black woman distracted a 81-year-old woman with various questions while at a San Marcos CVS Pharmacy and stole the woman's wallet and then left.

    The elderly woman credit cards were then used to make $2400 worth of fraudulent purchases and to get a $1000 cash advance.

    Detectives believe the suspect committed the same crime against two other women, ages 65 and 85 in San Diego and La Mesa, stealing about $6000.
