Cops are hunting for three people wanted in connection with an illicit spending spree carried out with credit cards nabbed off a Park Slope woman.

The victim told police somebody bumped into her as she stepped off an R train at the Union Street subway station near Fourth Avenue on March 12 at 9:45 p.m., and only later noticed that her wallet — containing her credit cards and driver’s license — had been pilfered.

On Monday, cops shared surveillance images taken from a Park Slope convenience store, where two men and a woman, all between the ages of 25 and 35, were spotted making purchases with the victim’s cards, according to police, who noted nearly $800 in charges had been racked up on the cards at numerous locations.

Anyone who provides police with information leading to an arrest can expect a $2,500 reward through the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers program.

The public can phone tips in at (800) 577-8477, log onto the Crime Stoppers website at, tweet @NYPDTips, or text tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.

All calls are strictly confidential.
