A young mother had her wallet stolen just a few days before Christmas while she was gift shopping.

The photo was of a woman who used the victim’s credit cards in Chattanooga afterwards.

Investigators say she racked up nearly a $1000 in purchases.

As soon as they posted the photos, Police were flooded with tips.

Those tips led to the arrest of Jillian Burger from Cleveland on Tuesday.
