Skokie police hope surveillance video will help them find a pickpocket who got away with $5,000.

Spex Auto Repair released a video which shows the suspect coming into the store on January 5. She walks behind a desk with a store employee and can be seen reaching into the pocket of the man's cargo pants.

The victim had withdrawn money from his bank earlier in the day and was carrying $5,000 in $100 bills. He realized the money was missing after the woman left.
