Lower Merion Township Police are looking for a man and a woman they believe are responsible for a series of thefts of wallets and credit cards at various businesses.
The department said in a statement Tuesday that the thefts have taken place over the last several weeks and have occurred in two ways.
One is when employees have stored their purse somewhere in the business where they work. One suspect distracts the employee while the other takes the wallet out of the purse.

What to do with old telephone buildings seems a constant conundrum for cities and towns. Conshohocken knows what it wants to do — use its old phone building to house borough offices and the police department.
The questions are how and for how much.
A conservative group is planning a rally and "pray-in" Friday to protest the issuance of same-sex marriage licenses in Montgomery County and demand action from Gov. Corbett and other elected officials.
Organizers expect 20 to 30 protesters to fill the Register of Wills office in Norristown at noon Friday. Michael McMonagle, president of the Pro-Life Coalition of Pa., said the protest will be peaceful, but "it could be an act of civil disobediance."
McMonagle said he and others are prepared to be arrested if public officials decide their protest is disrupting the office's ability to operate.

After a cognitive test of more than 3 million people in 478 cities, the tiny Montco borough of Ambler was ranked as one of Lumosity's 50 "Smartest Cities" in America.
No. 38, to be exact -- tied with the history-loving people of Williamsburg, Va., and a few spots ahead of Menlo Park, Calif., the home of Facebook, Intuit and Oracle.
Ambler came out with a score of 103.91, compared to the high score of 111.24 in Stanford, Ca. (my alma mater!)
