“This suspect could be connected to several thefts from vehicles in our jurisdiction,” said Acting Sheriff Scott Vance. He continued, “We’re hoping someone recognizes this woman so we are able to apprehend her before she can victimize another individual. Anyone who has information that could assist investigators is urged to contact our office at 740-833-2800.
