Gig Harbor police are trying to identify a woman who is suspected of stealing a purse last year and using the victim’s credit cards to make several purchases.
Tacoma-Pierce County Crime Stoppers issued a bulletin on the case today and released a photo of the suspect. The non-profit organization is offering up to $1,000 for information leading to the woman’s arrest and charges filed against her.
The theft happened last May.
The suspect stole a coat and purse from the women’s locker room at the Gig Harbor YMCA between 7 and 7:45 p.m. May 25.
Five minutes later, the suspect used the victim’s credit cards to buy items at a nearby drug store, police reported.
Investigators say the suspect appeared to be white and in her late 20s. She had a slender build and long, dark brown hair. During the theft, she wore white tennis shoes, khaki pants and a red track jacket with white stripes around the cuffs.
She drove a gold-colored sedan.
