Previous coverage:

Officers with the Lewiston Police Department are hoping some pretty decent surveillance photos will help them identify a suspected burglar. 

Officers say they responded to an alarm at Shopko Sunday just after the store had closed to find an emergency exit had been opened. Surveillance videos shows a woman walking in the store minutes before employees closed, removing clothing items and then hiding behind clothing racks until employees left. The woman then changed her clothes into the stolen ones and left the store through an emergency exit. 

Officers say the woman appears to be about 30-years-old, 5'8" to 5'10" and heavy set. She was wearing black framed glasses with reddish-blonde hair. 

If you recognize this woman, you are asked to call Officer Tom Woods at 208-746-0171.
