Police: Suspect charged after stealing a wallet from a New Jersey Chickie's & Pete's

- Two women were accused of stealing a wallet from a woman’s purse at the Chickie’s and Pete’s on 25 South Route 73 in Marlton, NJ.

The incident was caught on the restaurant’s surveillance camera back on July 5 around 7:15 that night.

On Monday, investigators from the Evesham Police Department charged 27-year-old Diane Doughty with the theft.

The surveillance footage shows the suspects taking the wallet as it hung off the back of the victim’s chair while at the restaurant.

Police say the two thieves headed to a Target store just a few minutes away on 73 and later a nearby CVS.

There, they used the victim's stolen credit cards to buy a couple thousand bucks worth of electronics and gift cards.

According to officials, it was the second time a customer in this restaurant has been targeted in the three months the place has been open.
