Corpus Christi Police Property Crimes Detectives would like help from the public to identify and locate a woman who allegedly stole money from a wallet at a store in Calallen on Dec. 13, 2015.
A 59-year-old woman reported her wallet lost to Corpus Christi Police at about 5 p.m. on Sunday, December 13, 2015. The 59-year-old woman told Officers she placed the wallet on the counter in the garden center of the store located at the corner of Northwest Boulevard and Interstate Highway 69 when she completed the transaction, then walked away leaving the wallet by mistake. The 59-year-old woman told Officers she returned to the counter and the wallet was gone and the clerk denied having seen the wallet.
Officers viewed store surveillance video, which showed a woman who was in line behind the 59-year-old woman pick up the wallet, leave the store with the wallet, but then returned to the same check out counter to return the wallet. When the 59-year-old woman was provided the wallet, her cash was gone from the wallet.
Corpus Christi Police are now investigating this event as a crime and would like help from the public to identify and locate the woman who took the wallet. The woman who took the wallet is described as an adult woman with medium brown skin, and wore a pink long sleeve “Browning” brand sweatshirt, dark pants and tennis shoes. The video shows the woman as she goes through the wallet before she returned the wallet with no cash. The woman then left in a silver four-door passenger car with missing hubcaps on the right front and right rear tires of the vehicle.
