VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

The Valdosta Police Department needs your help to identify a suspected purse thief.

Police say surveillance cameras at the Walmart on Inner Perimeter Rd. captured the woman stealing the purse on the morning of September 11th.  Police say a shopper left a purse in a cart around 9 a.m., but when they realized it a short time later and came back for their purse the purse was gone.

"It was then investigated by one of our property crime detectives and they were able to look at Walmart surveillance video and see an older, white female take the purse," said Valdosta Police Department Lt. Kari Williams.

If you think you recognize the woman, contact detective Ellen Mulvaney at (229) 293-3128.
