Fort Pierce police are looking for two women who are lifting wallets from purses and men's back pockets.

The Fort Pierce Police Department posted eight photos of the thieves on Monday.   By Friday, their pictures had been shared more than 250 times.

Law enforcement advise that pickpocketers can often camouflage themselves -- many dressing like wealthy businessmen, acting like tourists or even carrying a child. 

A good reminder is to keep your purse under your arm and close to body with your hand covering it.
