Woman accused of stealing special needs man's wallet in Ft. Bend Co.

RICHMOND, TX (KTRK) -- The Ft. Bend County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's help to find a woman they say made off with a special needs man's wallet.

It happened on May 7 at a Shell gas station on FM 762 at US 59. Investigators say the victim's father told police his 34-year-old special needs son bought something there, but left his wallet on the counter.

A woman was behind the victim in line, but did not take the wallet. The man behind her, though, believed the wallet to be hers. He reportedly handed the wallet to the cashier and then flagged the woman down.

Police say she came back, went into the store, took the wallet and left.

She is described as a Hispanic female, about 5-feet, 6-inches tall, weighing about 160 pounds. She has shoulder length hair which is black/brown in color. She was wearing a white shirt at the time of the theft. She was driving a new white passenger van, which was parked in the service station's parking area.

Information which leads to the apprehension and filing of charges on the suspects involved could earn a reward of up to $5,000.

All calls to Crime Stoppers are anonymous.
