Suffolk police need help identify suspects in an incident of credit card fraud at the Walmart on College Drive.
An employee lost her bankcard somewhere inside the store on April 2, according to a statement from Suffolk Police Department.
When the employee called her bank to report the loss, the bank said the card was used at the store at about 8:40 p.m., and at Walgreens in the 5900 block of High St. in Portsmouth at about 9.15 p.m. on the same day.

A review of surveillance video from both stores revealed a white female suspect — whether it’s the same female in both videos is unknown.
The suspect has long, auburn-colored hair and light complexion, but is dressed differently in each video.
In the Walmart video she wears her hair in a ponytail, and in the Walgreens video, she wears it in a bun.
Another older white female from the Walmart video is not suspected but is a person of interest, according to the statement.
She and the suspect arrived at the store together in an older-model four-door vehicle gold or tan in color.
Both females wore the same type of gray zippered jackets with similar designs.
Detective James Goben is the lead investigator.
