CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - An elderly couple came back from lunch to find his wallet and her costume jewelry missing.

The couple says the door was locked when they left and locked when they came home.  But somebody, somehow got in.

Within minutes, his credit card was being used at a nearby Petro Express, a CVS, a Wal-Mart, a Food Lion, a McDonalds, and Cricket store and even at a swanky day spa in SouthPark.

The victims live at Brookdale Place Senior Living Center off Rea Road.  Police think this may be an inside job.

Watch the video report, look at the surveillance pictures, and if you can help police crack this case, call Crimestoppers.  704-334-1600.  You could earn a cash reward.
