San Diego County Crime Stoppers along with investigators from the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department’s Poway Station are asking for the public’s help in identifying and locating an unknown female suspect wanted in connection with thefts and identity theft.
On July 28, 2017, at about 1:45 p.m., an unknown female, along with two young boys, entered the Home Goods store located at 13644 Poway Road in the City of Poway. The female retrieved miscellaneous bedding supplies from a store shelf and proceeded straight to the store's return desk where she received $110.95 in store credit. During the transaction, the female suspect provided a California driver license (CDL) belonging to another woman. That woman had reported her CDL stolen in January 2017. After receiving store credit for the items, the female suspect and the two boys left the store.
Since June 2017, the same female suspect has gone to different Home Goods stores in the San Diego area and exchanged over $4,000 in stolen merchandise for gift cards. She has used the same stolen California driver license during each transaction.
Suspect Description: The female suspect is described as a White female and was last seen wearing a red/burgundy tank top, shorts and sandals. She was accompanied by two young boys.
