MILWAUKIE, Oregon -- Milwaukie police are looking for two pickpocket thieves who stole $150 from a 92-year-old man on Thursday.Stanley George had just about completed his shopping at the Safeway store located at 4320 SE King Road, about 3:30 p.m. when a man stepped in front of his cart, when one suspect blocked his path and the other suspect approached him from behind and took his wallet, his driver's license, credit cards, and the cash from the wallet.

"I'm an Army veteran, and I never thought that in 2010 something like this would happen, especially in the Portland area," George said. "It all happened so fast."

George, has lived in Oregon nearly all his life, didn't realize his wallet was missing until he returned to his car.

The thieves were caught in the act by a surveillance camera, which police are hoping will help put the suspects behind bars. The two men are described as being 40 - 55 years old, with short-cropped hair and dark complexions.

If you have information please call the Milwaukie Police Dept. at 503-786-7500.
