A trip by a Beachwood woman to the K-Mart in Howell ended with her wallet being taken from her diaper bag while her child sat in the shopping cart.

Detective Sgt. Eileen Dodd of the Howell Police Department reported that on Sunday at 4:50 the woman was shopping in the store when she reported two black females in their 40s started talking to her. The woman reported that while she was talking to one of the women the other removed the wallet from her bag.

Dodd said credit cards in the wallet were used immediately after they were stolen and used in many stores in Howell as well as Hamilton Township. The suspects were caught on surveillance video as was their vehicle and the Howell Police Department is investigating the incident.

Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Patrolman David Levine or Detective Nancy Carroll at 732-938-4575.

I know what an amber alert is but sometimes I ll be driving along and I ll see the lit board calling for a SILVER alert with accompanying information on make of car, color and sometimes a tag number. What is this alert all about?

Why would you ask what a silver alert is here? Why wouldn't you just google it? A silver alert is for elderly citizens in trouble.
