LONGMONT, Colo. — Police in Longmont are looking for a woman who was caught on camera using a stolen credit card to purchase more than $4,000 worth of items at Walmart.

Police said the woman and at least one other person got the credit card from a purse stolen at Golden Ponds Park Thursday.

As an officer was investigating the park theft, the suspects made their way to the north Longmont Walmart to begin making purchases, police wrote in a Facebook post on Monday.
