ORLANDO, Fla. - The Orange County Sheriff's Office is searchign for the man who they say stole an 81-year-old woman's wallet from a counter in Walmart earlier this month.

After the woman accidentally left her wallet on the counter, surveillance video shows a man taking the wallet, and then pretending to help the woman look for her wallet when she returned to get it, according to deputies.

Deputies say the victim's credit cards were used a short time later. An estimated $140 worth of cash and gift cards were stolen with the wallet, according to the report.

According to deputies, they will not release the video of the crime due to the victim's "age and vulnerability."
