Around 3 p.m. Jan. 23, the man, wearing a dark jacket, camouflage shirt and blue jeans, reached into the purse while its owner kneeled to look at merchandise in the store at Branan Field Road and Blanding Boulevard, according to the report.

After stealing $265 worth of property, the man left the store and someone in a gold Honda CR-V drove him away, according to the report.

About 50 minutes later, one of the woman’s stolen credit cards was used to buy $3.98 worth of beef jerky.

The man and his companion, a woman in a dark jacket and camouflage shirt, asked for $100 in cash back from the cashier, according to the report.

The purchase was denied and the man and woman, suspected to be Leslee M. Roewe, 18, left with the stolen credit card, according to the report.

Posting photos from the surveillance video of the thieves on Facebook led to Hinton and Roewe being identified, Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Mary Justino wrote in an email.

Hinton is charged with petit theft, credit card fraud and dealing in stolen property. He’s held in lieu of a $66,008 bond, according to Sheriff’s Office records.

Roewe is charged with credit card fraud and dealing stolen property. She’s held in lieu of $32,506.
