Dart game turns into theft

HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

The game of darts involves a lot of concentration and focus - zeroing in on the target.

A woman was playing darts at Finnegan's Pub on Memorial Parkway, but while she was focusing on the board, another person was focusing on her purse.

According to Huntsville Police, the woman's purse was stolen.

The crook darted to the Foot Locker in Madison Square Mall.

All of this happened on June 2.

The man is seen on surveillance video at the Foot Locker trying unsuccessfully to use a stolen credit card to buy some Air Jordan sneakers.

After a couple of attempts, a guy standing beside him laid some cash on the counter and they left.

But the man is wanted by police for theft of property and fraudulent use of a credit card.

Any idea who he is? If so, you can collect some cash by calling 256-53-CRIME.

There's up to a thousand dollars in reward money for you.
