ST. LOUIS COUNTY (KMOX) - The St. Louis County - Afton Southwest Precinct gets creative on Facebook, using the song "Money Moves" by rapper Cardi B to ask for the public's help identifying a woman wanted for stealing lottery tickets from the QuikTrip on Gravois early Monday.  

As an accomplice distracts the clerk in the back of the store, the suspect is seen on the surveillance video stretching across the counter three times to pull a strip of scratcher tickets, dancing between each theft.

WATCH the theft and the dance moves below:

"While the video of her face isn't completely clear, we're hoping someone recognizes those dope dance moves," police say with the Facebook post.

The public is asked to call the Affton precinct if they can provide an ID.
