POLICE SAY GOOD SAMARITAN TURNED INTO A CRIMINAL:

Police are looking for a woman wanted for stealing cash from a wallet left behind at a Trussville store July 3rd. The suspect's pictures are posted to the right of this story.

That day, cameras captured the woman noticing the wallet at the cash register. She handed it to who police said is her daughter. After the young woman was unable to find the owner, the suspect took the wallet, walked around the store, and noticed $700 inside. As a finder's fee, police said she took the cash. Before leaving the store, the suspect notified the store employee that a customer had left the wallet behind.

"You would expect that people would want to help each other, but in this case, the suspect only helped herself to the victim's money," said Jefferson County Sheriff's Office Sgt. Brian Allison.

If you have any information on who the suspect is, contact Crime Stoppers immediately. You will remain anonymous.

TEXTBOOK THIEVES STRIKE AGAIN:

Detectives are searching for two men they said are responsible for stealing thousands of dollars worth of textbooks from UAB's Business and Engineering building.

The thefts began in July, and authorities said the thieves continue to steal. Photos of the suspects are posted to the right of this story.

"Honestly, the public is the only one who can help us at this point," said Birmingham Detective Pat Green.

If you recognize the men or have heard about the crimes, say something.
