Police are looking to the public to help them identify two people who allegedly stole someone's wallet from a convenience store last week.

Around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 17, Vancouver police went to 7-Eleven, 102 W. Fourth Plain Blvd., where a theft was reported. The victim had accidentally left her wallet on the counter. When she returned to reclaim her wallet, it was gone. An employee was able to record video of the suspects taking the wallet as they left the store. They fled in a black four-door sedan.

One suspect was described as a white man, 20 to 30 years of age, about 5 foot 9 inches tall and 160 pounds, with dark hair, wearing a red ski hat, a tan coat with a gray hooded sweatshirt underneath, dark blue jeans and black tennis shoes. The second suspect was described as a white woman, 20 to 30 years of age, about 5 foot 8 inches tall and 160 pounds, with blonde hair, wearing a white shirt, a green jacket, blue jeans and white tennis shoes.

Anyone with information about the two suspects is asked to contact Vancouver police Officer Holly Musser at holly.musser@cityofvancouver.us.
