Suffolk police are seeking help from the public in identifying two suspects who went on a shopping spree with a credit card that had been lost in a parking lot.

Suspect: Suffolk police are looking for the identity of this woman, who they say went on a shopping spree with a credit card she found in the Walmart parking lot in March.

Just after 10 a.m. on March 28, a woman dropped two credit cards and other identification in the Walmart parking lot in the 1200 block of North Main Street.

Video of the parking lot showed a man and woman arriving at the business and picking up the cards, city spokeswoman Debbie George said. The woman then went in the business and purchased items with the cards, including toilet paper, laundry detergent and a watermelon.
