Authorities are looking for a man wanted for withdrawing money from a victim's bank account at an ATM in southwest Houston.

Houston police released surveillance video of the suspect inside a Walgreen's store on 8535 South Braeswood on March 2.

The female victim, 38, from the Dallas/Fort Worth area, told police she noticed unauthorized transactions being made with her debit card. She quickly filed a report with Houston Police Department.

Authorities retrieved video evidence of the suspect during the transactions at the store. The suspect is seen at an ATM, swiping what appeared to be a card with the woman's account information on it. After obtaining more than $300, the suspect then purchased multiple gift cards at the cash register, according to police.

The suspect is described only as a black male, 20 to 30 years old, 5 feet 7 to 6 feet 2 inches tall and 150 to 190 pounds. He had a mustache and beard, and long dreadlocks.

Anyone with information on the identity of the wanted suspect is being asked to call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
