Based on surveillance footage, police say the suspect walked into an office building along 2900 Douglas Boulevard and stole the wallet from the person's purse. The footage did not capture how the suspect managed to remove the wallet from the bag.

After stealing the wallet, the suspect then withdrew thousands of dollars from the victim's bank account.
