Purse snatching victims track down surveillance video of thieves using their stolen credit cards.

Police in Houston, Texas are searching for a pair of suspected purse snatchers who were caught on surveillance video making use of the stolen goods.

The victims, two women, were walking from their vehicle in a parking lot November 21 when two men ran up from behind them and grabbed their purses.

"We were walking toward the bar and a male came up behind us, snatched my purse and it was her instinct to then turn around elbow them," one of the victims said. "That's when he grabbed her purse and threw her to the ground."

Police said one of the victims ran after the men. It was at that point that one of the men waved a knife at her and took off in a dark-colored car, police said.

Angry at the fact they stole her identification, credit cards and keys, one of the victims began doing some investigating. She said she went to all the places the men used her credit card and got surveillance video. Police said one of the men was seen holding her credit card in the video.
