A multistate theft ring is targeting customers at Whole Foods markets and Panera Bread cafes, stealing wallets and credit cards from distracted shoppers, Charlotte-Mecklenburg police say. According to a search warrant filed in the case, members of a South American ring quickly spend thousands of dollars with the stolen credit cards. The thieves often buy gift cards, which are difficult to trace and have become popular currency in hiding thefts of this type. ... A year ago, police in Boulder, Colo., reported a similar wallet theft at that city’s Whole Foods. The victim was shopping when she said her cart was rammed by one being pushed by a Latino male. In the resulting commotion, she didn’t realize her wallet had been taken, according to police reports.Can't you just see the white liberal apologizing when her cart is rammed by a Latino? There she is, getting a fix of organic food, feeling all Earth-y and noble, and suddenly she's smacked by an authentic peasant she can feel sorry for. But while savoring that rush of self-sacrificing altruism, she's being ripped off. Almost poetic, isn't it?
