In what authorities suspect is the work of a group of criminals targeting Twin Cities communities, in a single day four shoppers reported to Apple Valley police that a man and woman used distraction to steal their wallets.

A man and woman targeted stores in Apple Valley near the intersection of Cedar Avenue and W. 150th Street on Dec. 6, then quickly used the victims' credit cards to buy gift cards at nearby retail outlets, police crime prevention specialist Pam Walter said Tuesday.
