Pueblo police are wanting help in finding a woman who robbed a 90-year-old Good Samaritan.

On August 13, a 90-year-old woman was approached by a woman needing a ride, claiming her tire was flat. The victim wanted to help the woman out, so she offered her a ride. Once the suspect was gone, the victim realized that her wallet, which contained credit cards and a checkbook, was missing.

On August 19, the victim read an article about an incident similar to the crime she had just experienced. The suspect in the article matched the woman the victim had encountered.

The woman has been described as white and heavy-set. She has cashed a few of the victims checks at different grocery stores all located on the south side of Pueblo. Det. Scott Vahlbush said that it is not known at this time if the two cases are related, but that there is a possibility.

If anyone has any information that could help police solve this crime, call the Pueblo Crime Stoppers at 542-STOP.
