Police searching for 'Granny Thief' who allegedly stole wallet at Walmart

WAYNESVILLE, North Carolina (KTRK) -- A North Carolina police department is asking for help identifying a woman they have dubbed "Granny Thief."

In a Facebook post shared nearly 500 times, police say a toddler tossed his mother's wallet out of her purse while waiting at checkout inside a Walmart last week.

When the mom asked the woman pictured in the post about it, she said she didn't know anything.

But security cameras told a different story.

"Granny Thief" allegedly found the wallet and kept it.

Police say they're hoping to find her before she strikes again.
