Armed with nothing more than a common reusable shopping bag, a ring of thieves is stealing shoppers wallets--and identities--using a clever bag trick, at a growing number of Southern California supermarkets, an NBC4 I-Team investigation has found.

The thieves swiped Martha's wallet from her purse, which she put in her cart at Whole Foods in Del Mar. Surveillance video obtained by the I-Team shows how it happened.
