Now the Clarksville Police Department (CPD) has launched its own investigation and has encouraged members of the public who may have knowledge in connection with the incident, to come forward.

According to The New York Post, the two female suspects had approached the unsuspecting victim who was sitting in a pew at the Hilldale Baptist Church sanctuary on 9 February 2022 just after 18:00 and engaged her in conversation. At some point during their interaction, one of the suspects asked the 78-year-old to pray with her, which was when they stole her wallet, said public information officer Scott Beaubien.

“While they were praying, the second female rummaged through the victim’s purse and stole her wallet. The suspects attempted to use the victim’s credit cards at Sam’s and Kroger’s shortly thereafter,” he said.

Three of the women were then seen on video leaving a retail store called Sam’s Club, where they had reportedly used the victim’s credit card.
