LA PORTE, Texas (KTRK) -- Police in La Porte are searching for two men who they said stole a washateria customer's wallet.

On Feb. 8, during business hours, the two men went into the 5 Star Washateria in the 3900 block of Underwood Road. The men asked if they could use a wall outlet to charge their cell phones and were allowed to go in.

As the duo was leaving, they were caught on video stealing a customer's wallet. The wallet is seen on a folding table, directly behind where the victim was standing. The suspects then left and got away with the woman's wallet.
