HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

It's amazing how many times people leave themselves open for crime by leaving their vehicle doors open to criminals. 

In this particular case, a thief randomly opened unlocked vehicles in the parking lot of a Walmart store, stealing what she could. She then walked in the door of the store, attempting to use her new-found wealth.

Our suspect is shown in surveillance footage with a gray hood on, walking into the Walmart on Highway 72 West Feb. 22 in Huntsville. 

We have some very good still shots, as well as video of her going to a Redbox video rental machine, attempting to use the cash she had stolen. 

But those machines only work with cards. So that was a no go. 

But according to Huntsville police, this woman got into six unlocked vehicles, stealing various items. So she's wanted on a charge of unlawful breaking and entering of vehicles. 

We also see her vehicle in the parking lot. According to police, it's a Volkswagen Jetta with black wheels.

Any idea who she is? Even with the hood, we do have a fairly clear look at her.
