MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) -

Moultrie police said a man took close to $800 dollars when he stole a woman's wallet.

Now police need help identifying that man. 

Officials said he stole a hospital employee's wallet Friday morning, then used her credit cards at a self-checkout lane at Walmart.

"Most of them were gift cards or preloaded Visa cards or Master Cards. Swipe them, activate them, and then use the stolen card to load the money from the stolen credit card to the prepaid cards," said Investigator David Jones with the Moultrie Police Department.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Moultrie Police Department.
