ARVADA, Colo. -- Arvada Police say three people swiped credit cards from an 80 year-old shopper, not by force, but by asking questions about a gallon of milk!

Authorities say two men and a woman distracted the woman at the Natural Grocers at 77th and Wadsworth Blvd., by asking her about the price of a gallon of milk, while they took her credit cards.

About 45 minutes later, the woman realized her credit cards were gone.  In the meantime, cops say the trio went to a nearby Target and Walgreens and spent $5,000 on gift cards.

The suspects are described as being of middle-eastern descent, between 20-30 years old.
