Tips from viewers of NBC10 and 6abc Action News have led Hatfield Township Police to identify the man accused of stealing an elderly woman's Kohl's charge as David Tillery, of the 2300 block of North Natrona Street in Philadelphia.

Tillery's whereabouts are unknown, police said.

A warrant has been issued for Tillery, charging him with forgery, access device fraud, theft and other offenses, police said.

Call Hatfield Township Police at 215-855-0903 or email policetips@hatfield-township.org with any details on locating Tillery.

Tillery is the man seen with a heavyset woman, police said, who allegedly robbed the charge card from the 86-year-old woman while at ShopRite at Hatfield Pointe on April 1, and then used it to buy $1,200 in merchandise from Kohl's at Ralph's Corner on Welsh Road.

Police released surveillance photos of the persons in question, and their vehicle, a gray Mazda with tinted windows.

Police said Tillery distracted the alleged victim, while his alleged female accomplice removed the woman's change purse that had money and the card, police said.

The couple then left in the Mazda, which appeared to a have New York license plate, police said.

They were then spotted ten minutes later on surveillance at Kohl's, police said, using the stolen charge card.

The woman is described as heavyset, in her mid-40s and wearing a white shirt, police said.
