KELOWNA - Central Okanagan Crime Stoppers are looking for help from the public to identify a couple of theft suspects.

A woman’s wallet was stolen Sept. 6 from a truck in Dilworth. Within hours the woman’s bank accounts were accessed from four different locations in Kelowna and thousands of dollars taken from debit and credit card accounts, according to a media release. Access to the accounts was attempted the day after in Penticton, but were declined.

Police have identified a young woman, the person in the photograph, as a person of interest and are asking for the public's help in identifying her.

A separate vehicle theft happened Oct. 4 on the 3700 block of Casorso Road around 4:30 a.m. Surveillance video shows a male suspect entering an underground parkade and spending about 20 minutes inside. When he left he was carrying a brown Tommy Hilfiger bag, Gucci sunglasses and a white Michael Kors wallet that had cards and identification inside.

The male suspect was wearing a red ball gray jacket, jeans and carrying a black backpack.
