GLENDALE, Ariz. – Glendale police are asking for the public's help identifying a suspect and an investigative lead in a convenience store theft.

According to police spokeswoman Tracey Breeden, a woman entered a convenience store near Bethany Home Road and 59th Avenue shortly before 8 p.m. on July 17.

Breeden said the woman went to the rear of the store, entered an employee-only area and took a credit card from an employee's purse. She then left the store and reportedly used the credit card at multiple locations in the Glendale area.

The suspect is a white female, 40 to 50 years old, approximately 5 feet 2 inches tall, 180 pounds with long dark hair. She was last seen wearing a black shirt and black Capri-style shorts. She also had a blue or green bandage on her right hand.

Breeden said the suspect was seen with a black male wearing glasses and a checkered shirt.

Police have released surveillance video and photos of the suspect and the investigative lead. The other two males in the video and photo are not considered to be suspects or investigative leads at this time.

Anyone with information about the crime is asked to contact police at 623-930-3000 or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.
