Police said Saturday that the woman officers had sought in connection with a credit card theft in Middleton was cleared of wrongdoing.
The Middleton Police Department sent an alert Friday sharing a surveillance photo of a woman officers wanted to identify in connection with a stolen wallet and credit card case from mid-January. Police had asked for the public's help Friday in identifying the woman.
Police said Saturday that officers were provided the wrong video for the timeframe by the store and the woman pictured was identified and was not related to the case.
Police are investigating a report of a wallet that was stolen from a patron at a business on the 2500 block of Allen Boulevard in Middleton at about noon on Jan. 19. A customer told police she left her purse unattended briefly and later discovered that her wallet had been stolen.
A short time later, some of the credit cards that were in the stolen wallet were reportedly used, police said.
