STRONGSVILLE, OH (WOIO) -

Investigators need your help identifying adults and kids in a crime ring caught on camera, with one boy acting like a career criminal.

It happened at the Southpark Mall in Strongsville.

Three adults and two little boys walked into the Painted Penguin store. Two of the adults distracted a clerk at the front of the store. One adult and the boys looked behind the counter in back. Finally, video shows the adult nudged one boy. Then he crawled on his hands and knees and stole a wallet and credit cards from the purse of the clerk. That purse had been hidden behind the counter.

Strongsville police say two women then quickly used the stolen credit cards at another store buying gift cards and an iPad.

Investigators are trying to identify the women and actually the entire group.

If you know anybody you see, your tip could get you a reward. Call Crime Stoppers at 216-252-7463 or Strongsville Police at 440-580-3230.
