HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

A customer in a deli lost quite a bit of "dough" in the form of a credit card.

While the victim was eating, the thief was gobbling up items with her stolen card.

The woman police are looking for is seen on surveillance video going on an illegal shopping spree at a Huntsville Target store November 2.

Armed with a stolen wallet, she headed to electronics, picking out several items there. She was also seen at the checkout counter buying clothes and other items with the stolen credit card.

According to Huntsville Police, the victim was eating at Panera Bread at Bridge Street. Like a lot of women do, she placed her purse over the back of her chair.

She didn't realize until she got home that somebody had reached in and taken her wallet and they went to town with her American Express Gold Card.

In fact, police said the thief charged over $6,900 worth of merchandise.

She was seen on store surveillance wearing an Aeropostal pullover, jeans and she appeared to be wearing glasses.

If you know who she is, make the anonymous call to 256-53-CRIME or send an anonymous text or e-mail by clicking here.

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