Police in St. Matthews say a gang of women stole wallets from hospitals and doctors' offices and went on a spending spree.

Detective Tony Ford told WAVE-TV in Louisville the thieves are coming out of stores with shopping carts full of merchandise, including electronics.

Police said the group has been traveling in a Ford Windstar van with a missing hubcap. They have been seen on surveillance video from stores, but have not been apprehended.

The thieves walk into nurses' stations at hospitals and into doctors' offices, looking for purses.

An employee of a cosmetic surgery practice said her wallet was taken and $4,000 was charged to her credit cards and pulled from her bank account.
