TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Deputies are searching for a suspect who stole a victim's wallet from local Walmart parking lot and used their credit card to make fraudulent purchases at businesses nearby.

According to Leon County deputies, a man stole the victim's wallet from the shopping cart in the parking lot of the Walmart on Apalachee Parkway back in September.
