Pierce County sheriff’s detectives are asking for the public’s help in identifying a woman who unsuccessfully tried to break into a Buckley house on Feb. 21.

Surveillance footage shows the woman park a vehicle in the driveway of a home on Barkubein Road East. She then knocks on doors and looks into windows before trying to throw a small patio table through a glass door. She fled after cracking the door, the Sheriff’s Office said.

The attempted burglary occurred at 12:20 p.m. on Feb. 21.

The suspect is a white female in her late 20s or early 30s with a heavy build and long brown hair in a ponytail. She was wearing tan slippers, blue jeans and a gray hooded sweatshirt with “Seaside” scrawled across the front. The woman was driving a late 1980s or early 1990s blue Ford Thunderbird with a sunroof.

Tacoma-Pierce County Crime Stoppers is offering up to a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and charges filed against the attempted burglar.
