CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - A Charlotte woman learns the hard way about losing her credit cards to theft.

She left her purse in her unlocked car at this church while delivering food the week before Christmas.  But a thief helped himself to her credit cards and went straight to Target for ipods and playstations.

We caught him on surveillance video using her card, at not one, but two different registers, racking up hundreds of dollars in charges.

Police say the victim called her banks and canceled everything as soon as she found out her pursing was missing she canceled everything.  But it was too late.

Just a couple of hours had passed, but by then this crook had already stopped at Target and was on his way to Best Buy where he racked up another huge bill.

Watch the video and take a good look at his picture.  Can you help put this guy away?  If so, call Crimestoppers at 704-334-1600.  You could earn a cash reward.
