The Cabell County Sheriff's Department is looking for two suspects who snatched a wallet from a victim at a gas station, then went on a spending spree at Walmart, and detectives said it was all caught on camera.
Detectives said the suspects are a man and a woman. They said the women took the wallet from the victim at the Marathon gas station on 16th Street Road in Huntington on Aug. 18. Both suspects are seen leaving in a white car believed to be a Volkswagen or an Audi. Detectives said surveillance video shows the man using the victim's credit card at Walmart.
Sheriff's deputies are asking people to keep close tabs on their belongings.
"Keep your purses shut," Deputy Preston Stephens said. "When you go to pay for something, don't flash your money. Keep your purse on you. It has a strap on it. That's what the strap is for. Keep it around you. It's less opportunity for them. They don't want to fight, or they don't want to work to try to get something."
Anyone with information can call the sheriff's office at 304-743-1594.
