A theft in Moundsville in the middle of the day has police looking for leads.

Moundsville police released security footage to see if any local residents could help them with a lead.

It happened Jan. 28 at the Walmart in Moundsville when a woman forgot her purse in her shopping cart. She took her cart to her car and unloaded her groceries but forgot the purse.

Just moments after the woman leaves, another car pulls into the same parking spot as seen in the security footage.

And after waiting a few minutes, a person appears to get out of a black SUV, take a look around and then quickly grab the stray purse from the cart.

The person then gets into the car and drives away without even going in the store.

The police are looking at a possible black Saturn SUV which has Ohio registration.
