The women reportedly used the stolen cards from a Sunny Isles Beach woman to buy two pairs of sunglasses for $1,400 from Bloomingdale’s around 4:30 p.m., WPLG reported. 

Police were tipped off about the alleged thefts after the two credit cards were declined when the women later attempted to buy a $4,800 handbag from Nordstrom, according to WPLG.
