ORANGE PARK, Fla. -- Deputies in Clay County are looking to identify a woman who ran up more than $1,200 in charges on someone else's credit card.

The elderly victim told investigators someone stole her wallet out of her purse while she shopped at Walmart on Blanding Boulevard.

She said she went to check out at the pharmacy when she noticed her wallet missing.

Detectives learned the card had been used three times in less than an hour.

Someone used it to buy $314.58 worth of merchandise at Dillards at 1:32 p.m.

Five minutes later, the card went through for an additional $600 at Dillards.

Twenty minutes later, someone used the card at the Target store on Wells Road to buy $343.53 worth of items.

The potential suspect is caught on surveillance video.

If you recognize her, call Crime Stoppers at 866-845-TIPS. You will remain anonymous and could be eligible for a cash reward of up to $3,000 if your tip leads to an arrest.

My thoughts exactly Gunny48! I think the stores/cashiers need to take responsibility, because they ARE suppose to ask for DL for ID along with the credit card. That's a shame!

This one looks quite pleased with itself. I do not use my credit card much, but a recent transaction at a "big box" store using it, the cashier did not ask for my ID. I gave it her anyway. Above the signature line, I print SEE ID on it. So, Gunny there is a lack of concern from retail stores about this. Of course unless they lose the transaction due to theft and it happens enough to hurt their profit. Lesson learned for the woman that had her wallet lifted.

Make sure the "elderly woman" knows she is not liable for this thief's charges and help her with the credit card companies to verify that so they don't add "insult to injury".

Doesn't anybody ask for picture ID's any more or was this automated checkout?
