The man then closed the door, walked in front of the vehicle past the woman to a dark-colored vehicle parked on the other side of the fuel pump. The man placed the purse in the dark-colored vehicle, got into the drivers seat, and drove away. The woman finished pumping fuel, entered her vehicle and discovered the purse gone.

Corpus Christi Police Detectives assigned to the Auto Theft Task Force obtained video of the actual crime in progress and have made the video available for the public to view to ask for help to identify the suspect.

Detectives have obtained an image of a man and woman who are not suspects in this crime, but Detectives believe the man and woman may have information valuable to this case, so Detectives would like to speak to the man and woman.
