    The victim -- Vanessa DeBose -- is the owner of His & Her Consignment Boutique. She told FOX13 the first woman came inside pretending to shop. The second person came in moments later to "distract" DeBose. 

    Surveillance video showed the woman ducking behind drapes that cover the store's office and stock room. 

    The duo made off with $200 in cash, and more than $200 was charged to her credit cards until DeBose said her back stopped the transactions. 

    The victim’s credit cards were later used at Wal-Mart in Collierville and at a gas station in Byhalia, Mississippi.
