HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - How many times have you left valuables in your vehicle at your home?

It seems safe enough, doesn't it? It's not, as you'll see -and hopefully help solve- in this case.

Take a good look at the woman with the short hair and light-colored shirt. She's attempting to make a purchase at the GameStop on South Memorial Parkway in Huntsville October 11.

Security footage from the store shows the woman acting rather nervous, fidgety. Looking around.

And with good reason. Huntsville police say she's attempting to use a stolen credit card.

So where did this thief get her hands on the card? Police say the victim left her purse in her vehicle at an apartment complex.

A lapse in judgement. But not a crime, as this thief committed.

So back we go to the GameStop on South Parkway with this jumpy thief.

Police say she tried to buy a gaming system with that stolen credit card. We say "tried" because this was a fail.

Eventually you can see her take the card and leave the store.

But she's still facing a charge of breaking and entering a vehicle and fraudulent use of a credit card.

Do you know her? She could make you some easy and legal money.

Make the anonymous call to Crime Stoppers at 256-53-CRIME (27463).

Or, you can text or email your tips - information on how to do so can be found at the Crime Stoppers link on our category  page.

Your tips could land you $1,000 cash - plenty of money to game on.
