[March 13, 2009]  BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- How do you make relish? That's the question police said thieves used to distract an elderly woman in a Wal-Mart store as they stole her purse.

Now they're looking for the three suspects after hundreds of dollars in charges were made to the 79-year-old woman's credit cards for beer, cigarettes and gift cards.

Police said the three men approached the woman in a store aisle on Tuesday and asked if she knew how to make relish. As she pointed out the ingredients on shelves, one suspect snatched her purse.

Later that day, police said the suspects rang up the charges on her credit cards.
