Vancouver police are asking for help in identifying a woman who allegedly stole merchandise from Sears at the Westfield Vancouver mall on Sunday.

Surveillance video shows a woman wearing a black jacket and blue jeans pick up several clothing items and quickly leave the store without attempting to pay for the items. She got into a white Honda sedan, with Washington plates ADM2401, that was driven by a woman with blonde hair, police said.

Anyone with information on the identity of the suspect is asked to call Officer Ilia Botvinnik at 360-487-7400 ext. 3109.
