TULSA, OK - A pair of siblings are locked-up in Oklahoma after they were busted on camera trying to steal from en elderly woman.

The 82-year-old was approached by Sandra Keel in a grocery store. She says Keel told her that they went to church together and preceeded to show her pictures on her cell phone .

Police say that is when Keel's brother went after the 82-year-old's unguarded purse in a shopping cart. Johnny Watkins got away with her wallet, but the woman had stored her credit cards elsewhere so there was only a few dollars in cash and a library card inside.

Keel and Watkins were identified on store security footage and are now behind bars. Cops say this isn't the first time the brother and sister have run this scheme.

Check out the video to see them in action.
