This is Antonio and Evangelina Villareal as known as "Tony" and "Chickie". This couple has been married for 52 years and love to joke around with each other.
Back in January their home was broken into. Credit cards, personal information, and one of their prized possession's was stolen from their home. While Villareal was being treating at the hospital, the thieves broke into their home taking her engagement ring and a wedding band that used to belong to Villareal's grandmother.
Since the break in the Villareal's have added security precautions including a new alarm system. They also added locks on the window where they say the thieves broke in.
Now several months later police are releasing surveillance video of a woman they say is using Villareal's credit card to purchase items. They say this woman racked up $700 on the card.
Police are hoping that someone will identify her from the surveillance video and lead police to the person or people responsible for stealing the Villareal's possesions.
Brownsville police are asking if you any information about the woman seen in the video to call Crimestoppers at 546-TIPS.
