Bossier City Police and Bossier Crime Stoppers are asking the public for help in locating a pair of suspects in the recent theft of a woman’s wallet. Bossier Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward of $285 to anyone who has information that leads to arrests in the case.

The victim tells police the theft occurred last month and believes her wallet was stolen out of her purse while she was shopping at a local store. The victim’s credit card company reported her card that was inside the wallet was used later that same day at the Walmart on Airline Drive where the suspects made an unauthorized purchase of more than $900.

Later that day the suspects tried to use the card at the GameStop store in the 2300 block of Airline Drive but the card was declined due to the victim notifying the card company of the theft. The two suspects, a man and a woman, were caught on store security video. Both spoke with an accent and are believed to be Hispanic.

Anyone who can help police locate these suspects is asked to call Bossier Crime Stoppers at (318) 424-4100. They can also submit a web tip via the Bossier Crime Stoppers website or text a tip by texting the word BOSSIER followed by their information to 274637.

Persons who contact Crime Stoppers are reminded they may remain totally anonymous.
