Odessa Crimestoppers Searching For Man Involved in Theft of an Elderly Person

A 99-year-old Odessa Woman had her wallet stolen from her last Sunday and now Odessa Crimestoppers need your help finding the criminals involved.

She was waiting at her home in her Sunday best for her daughter-in-law to pick her up and take her to church.

Police tell NewsWest 9, a man walked into her home and told her his aunt lived right down the street and that he needed a glass of water to take some medication.

She let him inside and gave him a glass of water and sent him on his way.

When she went to sit back down, she found the man had stole her wallet.

He is described as a clean-cut white male.

Before her credit cards could be canceled, she found there were already over $1,000 worth of charges on it from Lowe's, Home Depot and Wal-Mart.

"What we have is video of a black or Hispanic male going into a store using the debit card," said Odessa Crimestoppers Susan Rogers. "They were able to use the credit card in three different locations in a very short period of time from the time they took it to the time they were able to shut the cards off."

The man who was in the video was driving either a Ford Taurus or Contour.

If you have any information on the man, you are urged to call Odessa Crimestoppers at 432-333-TIPS. You will remain anonymous and you may receive a cash reward.
