COLLINSVILLE, Ill. (KMOV.com) -- Police in Collinsville report that warrants have been issued for two men accused of terrorizing shoppers at Aldi's.
 
Michael Abuschon and Frank Casteel are wanted by police. Abuschon is expected to turn himself in, but Casteel is from Louisiana and is still on the run.
 
A female customer was loading her groceries when the two suspects took her purse out of the cart back in December. Police say Casteel and Frank calculated the entire event while waiting in an older model white Dodge truck. They chose the victim after they saw her exit the store.
 
 
The victim was not hurt in the initial incident, but her purse was stolen. 
 
A local resident, Jim Parker, said there has "never been problems before and hopefully there won't be anymore."
 
Police say it was a "crime of opportunity."
 
The search is ongoing.
