PRAIRIEVILLE, LA (WDAM) -

Louisiana authorities are asking for your help in identifying a woman who, they say, fraudulently withdrew money from the bank account of a local elderly woman.

The Ascension Parish Sheriff's Department says the elderly victim's wallet was stolen from a shopping cart at a Wal-mart in Hattiesburg in April.   

Authorities say the suspect has been caught on surveillance video at a Regions Bank in Prairieville, Louisiana.  

Authorities allege she used the victim's identification to fraudulently withdraw nearly $6000 from the elderly female's savings account.  Minutes later, authorities add, the suspect returned to the bank to fraudulently withdraw $1400 more from the same account. 

If you have any information that can help authorities, please call the Ascension Parish Sheriff's Department at 225-621-INFO or 225-621-4636.
