ST. LOUIS COUNTY (KMOX) – St. Louis County police are asking for the public’s help identifying a man who took the wallet of a woman who was trying to help him.

It happened November 1 at Shop ‘n Save, 5780 South Lindbergh, as the suspect was selling candy bars as part of a fundraiser at the front of the store.

A woman who donated to the cause left her wallet behind after completing her transaction.
