Police are looking for two women who used a young child to steal a wallet at a Queens store last week.

 

 

The women were at a Bell Boulevard boutique in Bayside on May 7 when they had the child remove a wallet from someone's bag behind the cash register, police said.

 

The child then gave the wallet to one of the women, who police said put it in her pants before leaving the store.

Cops are hoping surveillance footage of the women and child captured at the store will lead to arrests.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477), submit a tiponlineor text 274637 (CRIMES), then enter TIP577.
