CINCINNATI (FOX19) -- Police are looking for a woman who is suspected in a series of burglaries across southwest Ohio.

Police say the woman has been linked with thefts in West Chester, Woodlawn, Montgomery, Hamilton County and possibly Oxford. These thefts occurred around the summer months of 2007 with the exception of West Chester.

In each case an OR driver's license was used by the suspect with the victim's information re-produced onto the license.

Police believe she is back in the area and are asking the public's assistance in finding her.

On June 19, a theft occurred at the Biggs located off of SR 747 in West Chester.  Taken in the offense was an OH DL and Capital One credit card.  The victim says she was distracted by a black female and police believe a black male took the victim's wallet out of her purse while it was on her grocery cart.

Police say the suspects enter the Biggs at separate times, follow the victim, commit the theft, then leave the store at separate times.  Thirty minutes later, the victim's card is used across the parking lot at two banks.

The female is seen going into the banks and asks for a cash advance.  She presents an OR drivers license with the victims name from the theft already on the license.

If you have any information on this woman's whereabouts, call Crimestoppers at 352-3040.
