OCALA, Fla. -

Police are looking for the smiling woman who posed with a stolen credit card in a photo taken by an alert Ocala store clerk.

The Ocala Star-Banner reports the woman used the card moments after the picture was taken to buy more than $430 in beauty supplies.

Detectives say the card came from a wallet stolen July 4. The owner of the wallet called police Sunday to report more fraudulent activity on her card. Detective Mark Proco visited the stores where the card was used.

A clerk at Looking Good Beauty Supply remembered being suspicious when a woman tried to make a purchase in July but didn't have a photo ID. So she asked if she could take her picture.

Police are seeking the public's help in identifying the woman.
