Couple steals woman's purse, credit cards while looking at home listing

The Haines City Police Department is looking for a man and a woman they say stole a woman’s purse during a viewing of her house.

The pair asked to look at the Annette Cutchin’s house, which is for sale.

"She asked the right questions," Cutchin explained. "Looking for soft spots in the floor, how old the roof was."

While inside, they took her purse and used her stolen credit cards around Haines City, according to a post on the department’s Facebook page.

"They're low lifes," Cutchin said.

The police department posted pictures of the two people, as well as the red Jeep Cherokee they believe they’re driving.

In the meantime, they're reminding people selling their house to use a realtor who screens interested buyers. If you're going to sell it by yourself, get their name and number, and have them set up an appointment.

"Try to have someone with you to help safeguard from having things of this nature happening to you," Chief Gary Hester said.

If you have any information about this crime, you’re asked to contact the Haines City Police Department.
