The Columbia County Sheriff's Office is seeking a woman for questioning after surveillance footage showed her searching through a lost wallet before turning it in.

The victim reported losing her wallet in the parking lot of the Grovetown Walmart on Oct. 3. Surveillance footage showed a woman, who parked in the same parking spot, pick the wallet up just after the victim left the area. The woman, who was wearing pink and black scrubs, took the wallet inside the store, where she looked through the wallet for about 20 minutes before turning it in to customer service. Police said everything was accounted for except for $300 cash.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Investigator Craig Cirillo at (706) 541-3974.
