A woman's credit card was stolen out of her pure as it hung off the back of her chair, and police in Harford County are looking for the people responsible for the theft.

Video of the theft shows a man sit in a chair directly behind a woman inside a coffee shop in the Festival at Bel Air shopping center around 2 p.m. Aug. 20.

The man puts a bag on the corner of his chair then reaches into the woman's purse and steals some of its contents. Hours after the theft, a woman was caught on surveillance video trying to use the victim's credit cards at businesses in the Abingdon area.

The Harford County Sheriff's Office is asking for the community's help identifying the suspects. Anyone with information can call DFC Amanda McCormack at 410-612-1717.
