INFORMATION SOUGHT IN A PURSE THEFT  Sought 

On Monday, May 22, 2017, around 2:32 p.m., an unknown suspect(s) pried open and broke the window of a locked vehicle and removed a purse at Circle B Bar Reserve located at 4399 Winter Lake Road in Lakeland. A witness saw a dark gray car pull away from the victim’s vehicle and leave the area. 
(This is a great time to remind everyone – DON’T LEAVE YOUR PURSE IN YOUR VEHICLE! Thieves target areas such as parks, daycares, gyms, and other places where victims are known to do that)
The suspect(s) then used the victim’s MidFlorida debit card (which is shown in the video) on the same date around 2:44 p.m. at a Citgo gas station located at 2101 K-Ville Ave (CR 542) in Auburndale. The witness confirmed this is the same suspect car seen at Circle B. It appears to be a 2012 Chrysler 200 Super S, dark gray, with dark tinted windows, and chrome rims. The unknown female suspect, pumping the gas, has a large tattoo on her left calf.

Anyone able to identify the suspect or driver of the vehicle, please contact Detective Tan at 863-499-2400, email at atan@polksheriff.org , or call 863-298-6200.
