HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Imagine you're out shopping at several stores and you look down to discover that your wallet is missing. 

A wave of panic, disbelief and anger comes crashing in. Then you see the person who stole your wallet using your credit cards on surveillance video.

The woman police are looking for has long dark hair, is wearing glasses and a white top. She made several quick stops at local stores buying merchandise with stolen credit cards.

This all started at the strip mall at 4800 Whitesburg Drive. The victim noticed that someone had taken the wallet out of her purse. 

That's when her shopping spree ended and the crook's shopping spree started.

According to Huntsville police, the wallet thief stopped at Walmart, Target, Walgreens, Sally's Beauty Supply, and a Chevron station. 

She was kind enough - inadvertently, of course - to leave some pretty clear pictures of herself electronically swiping the cards she swiped. 

And we also have some clear looks at her entering and exiting stores around the Tennessee Valley. 

She might have thought nobody was looking, but that "electronic eye", the surveillance camera, never blinks. 

Any idea who she is? If so, you could pocket a nice reward of up to a thousand dollars with very little effort. 

Just make the anonymous call to 256-53-Crime. 

Or you can text or e-mail your anonymous tips. Head over to our Crime Stoppers section to learn how.
