Red Deer RCMP are looking for public assistance to identify a woman who attempted to defraud a jewellery store using ID and credit cards that had been stolen from a Calgary woman earlier this month.

Red Deer RCMP were called to a jewellery store in Parkland Mall at 8:20 p.m. on July 13th after a woman attempted to open a store credit card using a stolen credit card and driver’s license as her identification. The store staff verified that the credit card had been reported stolen and called RCMP, at which point the suspect fled from the store. The victim’s purse had been stolen on July 5th when thieves broke into a locked locker at a Calgary fitness facility.

RCMP have obtained surveillance photos of the suspect and are looking for public assistance to identify her. Police continue to investigate.

The suspect is described as a Caucasian female, about 6’ tall with brown hair and blue eyes. She had a flower tattoo on her chest and a rosary tattoo on her left arm.

Anyone who recognizes this woman or who has information about this investigation is asked to contact the Red Deer RCMP at 403-343-5575. Those wishing to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or report it online at www.tipsubmit.com.
