Wabash Valley law enforcement needs your help locating a suspect in an investigation in this week's Crime Stoppers.

According to Vigo County Sheriff's detectives, on March 2nd a victim filed a report stating that she had used a Vigo County Jail kiosk to deposit money into an inmate's account.

After completing the transaction she left the building not realizing she had forgotten her wallet on top of the kiosk.
