INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) An Army veteran is hoping security cameras will help identify a woman he said stole his wallet.

Jason Flagg was inside the Citgo gas station on E. 38th St. and Arlington Thursday morning when he left his wallet on the counter.

He came back a few minutes later, but the wallet was already gone. Store employees said their surveillance video captured a woman picking up the wallet, placing it into her purse and walking out of the store.

“That’s really jacked up and it’s not right,” said Flagg. “I put my life on the line for this country not to get stolen from and be treated like this. No one, no person deserves to get stolen from, not just because I am a vet.”

Flagg said he is in town for a few months helping take care of his stepparents and said getting another ID would be difficult while he is in Indianapolis. About $45 and credit cards were also taken.

“I feel like something needs to be done to here," he said. "I feel like something needs to be done to anybody that steals from anyone. This is serious to me."

Workers at the store told Eyewitness News the woman left in a car driven by another person, however, they could not identify make of car or the plate number.
