Tulsa Police are looking for the suspects responsible for pick pocketing a woman at the Panera on 15th and Utica.

A relaxing day at lunch for Leanna Harvey quickly turned into panic after a man slammed into her chair as she was eating lunch.
"I kind of noticed at the time that my purse moved but my whole chair moved so I didn't really equate it to anything," Harvey said.
It wasn't until she got into the car she realized her purse was lighter than usual.
"I was like oh my gosh I left my phone again," Harvey said. "So I'm searching while I'm driving and I was like nope there's my phone, so and then I didn't feel my wallet."
It wasn't until Harvey decided to check her credit card statement, and her husband called the bank, that she connected the dots.
"While he was on the phone with the bank they asked if we had charged $500 at target and he was like no," Harvey said.
Roughly $5,000 worth of unauthorized charges to her debit and work credit cards at Target, Lowes and Walgreens ended up on her bank statement. She immediately called police.
Officials believe the woman in the surveillance picture made those charges, and is connected to the man who bumped into Harvey at lunch.
Harvey said she was able to recover all of her money charged on the cards, however those responsible are still at large.
