ORANGE PARK, Fla. – Deputies are asking for the public's help in identifying someone who recently stole from a store at Orange Park Mall.

The theft happened Aug. 1 at Belk on Wells Road.

The Clay County Sheriff's Office said three polo golf shirts, two polo T-shirts and four Dooney and Bourke purses were taken from the store. The total amount stolen was $786.

Surveillance video captured the woman entering the store and heading upstairs to the Ralph Lauren department, where she grabbed the shirts from the sales table.

Deputies said the car was sitting by the exit with an unknown driver. The car then took off through the parking lot in an unknown direction, officials said.

CCSO described the suspect as a heavy-set woman wearing small blue jean shorts and a tank top.

Anyone who recognizes this suspect is asked to call the Clay County Sheriff's Office at 904-264-6512.
