The woman, who is in her late 70s, had loaded some shopping into her car and was about to return her trolley when she was approached by a man.

He stopped her and asked her if she could write down directions to the hospital as he was feeling unwell.

The incident happened between around 2pm and 2.30pm on Thursday, August 22, and she reported the theft later that day after her bank alerted her to some unusual transactions.
