Franklin police are asking for help identifying a woman they said stole nearly $1,000 in gift cards.

Police released surveillance photos of a woman leaving Walmart, 2125 U.S. 31 North, after noon on May 2.

The woman walked into Walmart and grabbed several gift cards. At one register, she asked the cashier to load the gift card with $499 and swiped a credit card to pay, but then canceled the transaction. The woman then hit a button on the cashier’s keyboard, making the cash register open. When the cashier closed the cash register, the woman grabbed the receipt and walked away, the report said.

The woman then walked to a second cash register and did the same thing before walking out of the store, according to the police report.
