Police looking for this woman for crimes in both Topeka and Lawrence

TOPEKA (KSNT) – Police are looking to identify a woman in connection with crimes in both Topeka and Lawrence.

The Topeka Police Department shared a photo Thursday of a woman who appears to be inside a gas station or convenience store. The department said she’s connecting to a car theft investigation in Lawrence, and criminal use of a credit, debit or other financial card in Topeka.

The woman appears to have pink and blonde hair, and a tattoo on her left arm. She was seen in the photo wearing a black shirt that says “Guess” in large letters, and is carrying a bag that also says “Guess” on the strap.

When KSNT News asked TPD what store the woman was inside where someone took a photo of her, it said those details were part of an ongoing investigation. The department gave the same response when asked what kind of card was used in the Topeka financial card crime.

The Lawrence Police Department did give some information about the auto theft incident. It told KSNT News the car was reported stolen a month ago.

“We do not believe the suspect pictured in the Facebook post is currently in possession of the stolen vehicle,” LPD said.
