DEERFIELD TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -- The Warren County Sheriff's Office is seeking the public's assistance in identifying a woman who is a suspect in a theft from a vehicle in Deerfield Township.

On May 22 at 2:30 p.m., police say the victim was inside JF Burns Elementary School on Columbia Road for only a short time. When she returned to her vehicle, she found her purse containing her checkbook missing from her vehicle.

Less than an hour later, a suspect used information gained from the stolen checkbook to withdraw a significant amount of funds from the victim's bank account.

The suspect is a white female, 30 to 40 years-old, medium to heavy build, with light brown hair. The suspect made the withdrawal at a PNC Bank branch on Tylersville Road in West Chester.

Anyone who may know the identity of this suspect is urged to call CrimeStoppers at 513-352-3040 or the Warren County Sheriff's Office at 513-695-1280.
