BETHESDA, Md. (WUSA9) -- Montgomery County Police are looking for a woman who they believe is responsible for two credit card theft and fraud incidents. 

Police have released the enclosed photos and video in hopes that someone will identify the suspect. 

According to police, a woman was shopping at Westfield Montgomery Mall on June 30 and noticed that her wallet was missing from her backpack, that she kept on the back of her wheelchair, when she left the premises. 

"The victim called her credit card companies and realized that in approximately two-and-a-half hours, the suspect had fraudulently charged approximately $3,000 on her cards," police said in a release. 

On July 10, a woman was eating with relatives at the Panera in Aspen Hill. She went to the counter to pick-up her food order and left her purse on the chair, police said. 

Later in the day, she noticed her credit cards were gone and that someone had charged approximately $11,000 on her cards, police said. 

In both incidents, the cards were used in locations in the Wheaton and Montgomery County area. 

Officers released the video below of the suspect using the victim's credit cards. The suspect is described as a black female with a medium build and possibly wearing a wig, police said.
